WESTMINSTER bosses have reportedly been asked to release CCTV footage from a bar where a Scottish Tory MP is alleged to have drunkenly groped men.

Ross Thomson, 31, has described claims against him as “completely false” and last week referred himself to his party’s in-house disciplinary panel.

Parliament’s ethics watchdog is also said to be looking into the allegations, with witnesses claiming the Aberdeen South MP groped young men in Westminster's Strangers' bar on Tuesday evening.

Now the political website Guido Fawkes has reported someone present in the pub at the time of the alleged incident has requested CCTV footage be released under General Data Protection Regulations (GDPRs).

It comes after Mr Thomson released a statement at the end of last week, insisting: “A series of allegations have been made against me that have featured in the media.

“I would like to state that these allegations from anonymous sources are completely false.

“No complaint has been made to the police, Parliament or the Conservative Party.

“Nevertheless in the interests of openness and transparency, I am referring myself to the Conservative Party’s Disciplinary Panel of the Code of Conduct.”

Catriona Matheson, the SNPs head communications at Westminster, called it “jaw dropping”.

She tweeted: “It was the talk of Parliament yesterday because the bar was packed and there were multiple eyewitnesses. I spoke to several people who were horrified by what they saw.”

An eyewitness also told The Herald they saw Mr Thomson groping the crotch of a man in his mid to late 20s, adding: “It absolutely beggars belief that he can deny all of it.”

Another witness described the MP as “paralytically drunk”.
