MP Claudia Webbe charged with harassment against woman

Labour MP Claudia Webbe has been charged with harassment against a woman.

In a statement, the Crown Prosecution Service said it made the decision after receiving a file of evidence from the Metropolitan Police.

It added: “Criminal proceedings against Ms Webbe are now active and she has the right to a fair trial.

“It is extremely important that there should be no reporting, commentary or sharing of information online which could in any way prejudice these proceedings.”

Webbe, who represents Leicester East in the House of Commons, will appear at Westminster Magistrates’ Court on 11 November.

She is accused of carrying out the harassment between 1 September 2018 and 26 April this year.
