Scottish Labour's leader steps aside amid claims of misconductThe interim leader of Scottish Labour has stepped aside, amid claims of misconduct.

Alex Rowley left the role after allegations about his behaviour towards an ex-partner were published in the Sun today. 

Rowley, who took on the leadership post on an interim basis after the resignation of Kezia Dugdale in August, said the claims were baseless. 

"I totally refute these allegations and will take all steps necessary to clear my name," he said.

"These allegations must be properly and thoroughly investigated in line with our party's procedures - and I will refer myself to the party so such an investigation can take place.

"While that investigation is carried out, I will step aside as deputy leader, as well as interim leader, of the Scottish Labour party."
