LONDON - British police said they would review accusations of sexual misconduct made against a former official of the coalition's Liberal Democrats, intensifying a scandal that threatens to overwhelm the party ahead of a by-election.

Detectives from London's police force will consider whether "criminal activity" took place relating to the allegations of sexual impropriety made against the party's former chief executive Chris Rennard, the Metropolitan Police Service said.

Rennard, a member of parliament's upper house, denies the allegations, but has stood down from party duties while they are investigated.
