One of the four female Lib Dem activists who accused Lord Rennard of harassment has said she has mixed feelings after receiving a written apology from the peer.
Former Welsh assembly candidate Alison Goldsworthy told Channel 4 News:
I am relieved that some acceptance has now started to come forward from Chris Rennard that what he did was not okay but very frustrated that I have had to spend the last 15 months talking about things that are really very private and quite intimate to me to be able to achieve it.
If he had accepted and offered this apology up 15 months ago then things may be very different.
Ms Goldsworthy said "the fact that Chris Rennard has now accepted that his behaviour was untoward" meant Lib Dem leader Nick Clegg should expel him from the party.
