Roger Bird cleared of wrongdoing over sexual harassment claims

UKIP General Secretary, Roger Bird, has been cleared of any wrongdoing over the vexatious sexual harassment claims made against him by former Labour activist, Natasha Bolter.

Serious doubts had already been cast on Bolter's claims by the release of a series of text messages she sent to Bird telling him she loved him and other romantic messages when Oxford university publicly announced that they could find no record of Bolter ever having attended as she claimed.

Despite being cleared of wrongdoing, Bird is leaving his post early by mutual consent because of the "unfortunate publicity" which is disappointing.
