Tynwald Day guest investigated

Peer faces police and parliamentary probe

A Labour peer who was invited to at this year’s Tynwald Day ceremony as a guest of honour is to be investigated by police after an expose in a Sunday newspaper.

Lord Sewel was filmed by the Sun allegedly taking cocaine with prostitutes, sparking police and parliamentary investigations.

In the video, he’s in his London flat, telling women about a recent trip he made to the Isle of Man, describing lunch on a steam train.

And he’s also seen boasting about the press coverage of his trip, claiming he read about the parliamentary visit, which included trips to Island schools, on his iPad.
