Senior members of the Liberal Democrats allegedly "openly laughed" at a female party activist when she told them former chief executive, Lord Rennard, propositioned her during a party dinner.
The woman told Channel 4 News she was forced to run back to her room on the night of the dinner as the then most powerful party official followed her after she left the table.
She said party officials thought it was "hilarious" when she told them about the allegations the following morning:
Everyone else who was sat at that table, which included senior members of the party, did nothing, they were either giggling or smirking.
And the next day when I told them what had happened as I left the room, they openely laughed and thought it was hilarious.
