A Tory MP has apologised after he was filmed flashing his genitals in a pub.
James Grundy dropped his trousers at a private event in the bar, with onlookers encouraging him to expose himself.
The incident took place more than a decade before Grundy was elected as MP for Leigh, Greater Manchester, in 2019.
He said: "I apologise for my actions and for any offence caused."
Footage obtained by LBC showed Grundy taking down his trousers and a woman could be heard telling him to lift his shirt to show his genitals.
