A key aide to Jeremy Corbyn, and the son of former Deputy Prime Minister John Prescott, has been suspended from his job.

David Prescott is being investigated by the Labour leader's office after he was suspended a few days ago, the BBC understands.

It comes amid widespread allegations of misconduct at Westminster.

No formal complaint has been made to the Labour Party, which declined to give a reason for the suspension.
