Cameron 'shocked' by claim No.10 aide groped TV writer

Cameron 'shocked' by claim No.10 aide groped TV writer”

A spokesperson for Prime Minister Theresa May told reporters Tuesday that May was taking the ITV producer's complaint very seriously, the Guardian reported.

A TV producer has said she was "groped" by a British government official at 10 Downing Street.

Daisy Goodwin, who created the hit ITV series Victoria, was speaking to the Radio Times when she detailed how a man at the prime minister's residence placed his hands on her breasts after a meeting.

Goodwin said the stories that had come to light about sexual harassment in Westminster had caused her to see the incident in a new light.

Ms Goodwin said the official - who has not been named - invited her into an office at Number 10 for the meeting. I looked at the hand and then in my best Lady Bracknell voice said, "Are you actually touching my breast?' "He dropped his hand and laughed nervously".

Goodwin then added that she had chose to speak out in the wake of recent sexual assault and harassment scandals that have shook both Hollywood and Westminster after allegations were levelled against the likes of Harvey Weinstein and Kevin Spacey.

Goodwin added: "I wasn't traumatized, I was cross".

But the incident now stands out in her mind and "became an anecdote: The Day I Was Groped In Number 10". "Yes, of course, it's an issue we are concerned about", the spokesman said, adding that the government would ensure the accusation "is properly looked into".

"We are looking at it, and as we have said, wherever an allegation has been made we will make sure it's treated with the utmost seriousness". "He is alarmed, shocked and concerned, and has made the Cabinet Office aware", the spokesman said.

She had never considered reporting the incident until the recent Westminster and Hollywood revelations.

Dozens of MPs have been accused of inappropriate sexual behaviour in the wake of the Harvey Weinstein allegations in what's been dubbed the "Pestminister Scandal". "The answer is, I am not sure", she said. "As is usual practice, the Cabinet Office will thoroughly investigate any complaint made".

Bex Bailey, a former member of Labour's ruling National Executive Committee, claimed she was raped by a party official, while a female Westminster staffer has said she was attacked by an MP on a foreign trip.
