Baroness Bakewell reveals she was sexually assaulted by junior minister in a taxi


BARONESS Bakewell has revealed she was sexually assaulted by a junior minister in a taxi.

The author and broadcaster said she fended off the MP but never reported the incident.

She said it happened all the time in the 1950s and 1960s.

Lady Bakewell, 87, then a BBC worker, said: “I went to fetch him from the Commons to come on the programme.

“The police would’ve said, ‘Well that’s just to do with your private life. You’re alright. He’s not done anything that breaks the law’.” 

She tells Times Radio today there were several predators at the BBC and one harassed a whole team of females.

The baroness added: “The women went to the head of department and it eventually went up to, I think as far as the controller.

“The person was reprimanded, and then he was promoted.”
