Lib Dems 'reprimand peer over Lord Rennard call'

The BBC is reporting that the Liberal Democrats have reprimanded a peer after he telephoned a woman who had complained to newspapers about Lord Rennard's behaviour.

Lord Stoneham reportedly remonstrated with the woman and Nick Clegg's aides are said to have described his conduct as, "completely unacceptable."
