Tory MP filmed flashing at young woman in a pub

A Tory MP has apologised for exposing his penis in front of young women at a pub in what has now become his constituency.

James Grundy – the first ever Tory MP for Leigh – flashed his genitals at the Rams Head Inn in Wigan in the incident filmed before he became a Conservative councillor.

Obtained by LBC, the footage shows Mr Grundy dropping his trousers before a young woman instructs him to lift his shirt and reveal his privates.

The MP told ‘I apologise for my actions and for any offence caused.’

Mr Grundy can be heard in the video telling the person filming that there is ‘no way’ his face can be on camera.

At the time of the incident in 2007, the MP was in his late 20s while all others present were 18 or over.

The Tory MP took the Leigh seat from Labour’s Jo Platt at the December general election, the first time the former safe seat turned from red to blue in 97 years.

He was one of a wave of new Conservative MPs to win in Labour safe seats in the north of England, later dubbed Boris Johnson’s ‘blue-nami’.

Some of Mr Grundy’s constituents in Leigh have called for him to step down in light of the newly unearthed footage.

One told LBC: ‘It’s unacceptable whenever it was, in my view. Hopefully something gets done about it – I can’t see somebody in a position of responsibility going around doing that type of thing.

‘He should step down as a minimum and [it should be] looked into a bit more closely through the correct authorities.’

They added: ‘If you’re going to be in a position of responsibility and you’re going to be representing people, you’ve got to be accountable for your actions whenever they are.’

Months after the video was recorded, Mr Grundy went on to become a Tory councillor before becoming a Conservative MP.

Conservative sources said the party had no record of any complaint being made about the incident or the video. has contacted the Conservative Party for comment.
