David Warburton goes into psychiatric hospital after suspension from Tory party

An MP has been admitted to a psychiatric hospital for severe shock and stress after he was suspended from the Conservative party over allegations relating to sexual harassment and cocaine use.

David Warburton, who represents Somerton and Frome in the Commons, was said to be receiving medical support following reports in the Sunday Times and Mail on Sunday that he was being investigated over his conduct.

He faces allegations from three women, and a photo has emerged of him allegedly sitting alongside lines of cocaine.

He has had the Conservative whip removed and the accusations are being examined by parliament’s new harassment watchdog, the Independent Complaints and Grievance Scheme (ICGS).

Earlier on Sunday, it was revealed that Warburton had been advised by the Conservative party to stay away from the parliamentary estate while the investigation was carried out.
