Lord resigns and faces police probe
The House of Lords peer responsible for overseeing
standards of behaviour has resigned after 'being
filmed snorting cocaine off a prostitute's breasts
during a romp with two escorts'.
Baron John Sewel, 69, will step down from his
roles as Deputy Speaker and Chairman of Committees
at the House of Lords following the Sun on
Sunday's publication of a sordid 45-minute video.
The paper claims Sewel stripped naked for a
drug-fuelled sex romp at his London flat during
which he referred to Asian women as 'whores' and
turned a framed picture of his wife face-down.

Reports said the cross-bench peer, a former ally
of Tony Blair, was also caught on video telling
the prostitutes: 'I just want to be led astray.'
Within hours of the article being put up on the
Sun's website, someone altered Sewel's Wikipedia
page to say: 'He enjoys cricket, golf, reading,
hill-walking, cocaine and cooking.'
In the film, Lord Sewel is shown romping with two
women at his flat in Dolphin Square, Pimlico, a
couple of miles from Parliament.

At one point, hunched over a table, the former
Labour Minister allegedly held a £5 note in his
left hand, his wedding ring on display, as he
appeared to snort the white powder up his left
He was also filmed admitting to one of the escorts
his behaviour was 'disgusting'.
Today he quit as chairman of the Lords' Privileges
and Conduct Committee – the body that upholds
standards of behaviour among peers.
