A TORY MP has apologised after he was filmed flashing his genitals in a Lowton pub.

James Grundy dropped his trousers at a private event in Rams Head Inn on Slag Lane, with onlookers encouraging him to expose himself.

The incident took place more than a decade before Mr Grundy was elected as MP for Leigh in December.

It was one of the biggest shocks on election night.

He said: "I apologise for my actions and for any offence caused."

Footage obtained by LBC showed Mr Grundy taking down his trousers and a woman could be heard telling him to lift his shirt to show his genitals.

All those involved in the event in 2007 are understood to have been over the age of 18 at the time.

LBC reported that the incident took place in the Rams Head Inn in Lowton, in what is now Mr Grundy's constituency.

Mr Grundy became a Lowton East councillor in 2008 before being elected as MP in 2019 - the first Tory to represent Leigh.

On the same night, Mr Grundy, who was in his late 20s at the time, was also captured on video in the pub singing Adam and the Ant's Stand and Deliver and Peter Gabriel's Sledgehammer.
