It is understood that Ms Webbe, who was first elected to parliament in December 2019, has had the party whip removed pending the outcome of the case.

In a statement, the Crown Prosecution Service said it made the decision to charge the Leicester East MP after receiving a file of evidence from the Metropolitan Police.

It added: “Criminal proceedings against Ms Webbe are now active and she has the right to a fair trial.

“It is extremely important that there should be no reporting, commentary or sharing of information online which could in any way prejudice these proceedings.”

Ms Webbe, 55, will appear at Westminster Magistrates’ Court on 11 November.

She is accused of carrying out the harassment between 1 September 2018 and 26 April this year.

Ms Webbe said in response: “I am innocent of any wrongdoing and look forward to proving this in court.

“I will be vigorously defending myself against these claims.”

A Labour Party spokesperson said: “It would not be appropriate to comment on an ongoing case.”
