Korski drops out after groping claims. Now what?

11 min listen

Daniel Korski, the former David Cameron aide who was standing to be the Conservative candidate for London mayor, has dropped out of the race after a woman claimed he groped her in a meeting in 2013. Korski had won the support of a number of high-profile Tory MPs, and was seen as the likely candidate to face Sadiq Khan in next year’s mayoral election. With only two people left in the race, will the Conservatives reopen nominations?

James Heale speaks to Katy Balls and Isabel Hardman.
