Scottish politician Alex Rowley has recently stepped down as interim leader of the Scottish Labour Party after his former partner claimed that the man send her abusive messages, threatened her and literally turned her life into "hell".

The woman, who had yet to be identified, referred to her relationship with Rowley as one of "emotional blackmail and abuse". She said she lodged a second police complaint, in which she did name Rowley, in November 2014.

The decision to suspend Rowley came after pressure from former party leader Kezia Dugdale and both Anas Sarwar and Richard Leonard, who are vying to replace Dugdale during the current leadership election.

"Sexual harassment and abuse is never acceptable", she said.

Scottish Labour will have a new leader on Saturday when the victor of the leadership race between Richard Leonard and Anas Sarwar will be announced.

Scottish Labour has been plunged into fresh turmoil after Alex Rowley was forced to step aside as acting leader while allegations about his behaviour towards an ex-partner are investigated.

Mr Sarwar said: "These allegations are distressing and deeply concerning".

"Given the evidence published today, the right course of action for the Labour Party to take would be suspension", she added.
