Theresa May’s comments urging sexual abuse victims at the Palace of Westminster to go to the police come after it was revealed that female researchers and aides had set up a WhatsApp group to report incidents.

British Prime Minister Theresa May has urged people working at the Houses of Parliament to report any sexual harassment or abuse to the police.

A Downing Street spokesperson said the PM felt allegations aimed at a number of MPs, including Cabinet members, were “deeply concerning.”

“The reports are very concerning, but I can’t pre-empt allegations or investigations that haven’t come to light yet,” said May’s spokesperson.

It comes after The Sun newspaper reported on Friday, October 27, that female researchers and aides at Westminster have set up a WhatsApp group to share information about incidents.

One minister was accused of being “not safe in taxis” and several MPs were accused of being “very handsy” in elevators.
