Channel 4 News' chief political correspondent Michael Crick says that the Lib Dem Chief Secretary to the Treasury Danny Alexander has cancelled his trip to the Eastleigh by-election campaign as the party is engulfed the midst of the allegations over former chief executive Lord Rennard:
Danny Alexander's visit to Eastleigh this afternoon has been cancelled
He said he "did not know about specific allegations."
Nobody thinks Nick is the kind of guy who would defend a 'boy's club', but that does not necessarily mean he has handled the issue well.
One of the women who made allegations against Lord Rennard told ITV News that Lib Dem leader Nick Clegg shifted his position on the matter.
Questions for the Lib Dems mount, centred on what senior members knew about allegations surrounding former chief exec Lord Rennard and when.
