'A female Labour MP has made fresh sexual harassment allegations about under-fire backbencher Kelvin Hopkins.
Kerry McCarthy has known Mr Hopkins for more than two decades and is understood to have taken the complaint to the whip’s office a week ago.
The former frontbencher said the Luton North MP sent her a series of letters and cards commenting on her appearance, including one in which he described having a dream about her.
Asked about the claims on Friday, Labour highlighted that Mr Hopkins is already suspended and under investigation relating to allegations that he behaved inappropriately towards a young Labour activist – claims he denies.
One early note to Ms McCarthy dating back to the early 90s called her "attractive, intelligent and charming" before asking her to dispose of the card.'
