Boris Johnson has given his support to Prince Andrew in the wake of underage sex claims, saying he has sympathy for the Duke of York.
"He does a huge amount of good and a huge amount of hard work. So if you are asking me whether I have sympathy for him, of course I do," the Mayor of London told LBC Radio.
"Prince Andrew, let's be very clear, is a guy who does a huge amount of unsung, unheralded work for this country," Johnson said. "I think that people should respect that side of his work."
How the allegations that a woman was forced to have sex with Prince Andrew while she was underage unfolded.
Buckingham Palace has said any suggestion Prince Andrew was involved in "impropriety with under age minors is categorically untrue".
