The Daily Telegraph - - News - By Hay­ley Dixon and Christo­pher Hope

A FOR­MER se­nior aide to David Cameron last night de­nied grop­ing Daisy Good­win fol­low­ing a meet­ing in Down­ing Street.

Daniel Korski, who left as special ad­viser fol­low­ing the Brexit vote, said that any ac­cu­sa­tion of in­ap­pro­pri­ate be­hav­iour was “not only to­tally false but also to­tally bizarre”.

Ms Good­win, 55, a writer and pre­sen­ter, has claimed she was called to dis­cuss a pro­posed tele­vi­sion show when Mr Cameron was prime min­is­ter and an of­fi­cial told her she looked like a Bond girl be­fore putting his hand on her breast. She said that when she chal­lenged him “he dropped his hand and laughed ner­vously”. Ms Good­win said she did not re­port the mat­ter as she was “cross” rather than trau­ma­tised.

It is un­der­stood that No 10 has been at­tempt­ing to con­tact her to in­ves­ti­gate the al­le­ga­tions. She has re­fused to name the man in­volved, but Mr Korski was linked to the claims on a po­lit­i­cal blog.

When ap­proached by The Daily Tele­graph, he said: “I am shocked to find this is in any way con­nected to me. I met with Ms Good­win in No 10 twice I think, and she may have met oth­ers too. But I cat­e­gor­i­cally deny any al­le­ga­tion of in­ap­pro­pri­ate be­hav­iour.”

Mr Cameron said that the first he knew of the claims was when Ms Good­win wrote an ar­ti­cle de­scrib­ing the en­counter. A spokesman said he had in­formed the Cab­i­net Of­fice.
