Media captionFormer hostess: “There were daughters sat on people’s laps being fondled and groped”

Theresa May has said she was “appalled” by reports females were groped at a men-only gala and was “not happy” that an event like that took place.

The Prime Minister said she would continue to work to ensure girls were “accepted and respected as equals”.

Mrs May will also consider whether any alterations were needed to non-disclosure agreements, Downing Street said.

The legal documents were signed by the hostess who worked at last Thursday’s Presidents Club event, it was reported.

Non-disclosure agreements are legal documents signed between two parties to share confidential information.

The Presidents Club said it was closing and would no longer hold events after an undercover reporter for the Financial Times disclosed hostess were subject to groping and lewd remarks at the dinner in London.
