Tory MP Richard Drax and his wife cleared over sex claim

The MP who was falsely accused of inviting his lesbian housekeeper to join him and his wife in a threesome was named as Richard Drax.

The Tory MP for South Dorset spoke of his family's relief after their housekeeper had her case for sexual harassment and unfair dismissal rejected on Wednesday. The tribunal in Southampton heard that events described by Anne Lyndoe-Tavistock "did not happen".
