A draft report into allegations of bullying by UK home secretary concluded in the summer that Priti Patel had broken rules on ministers’ behaviour, sources have told the BBC.

The Cabinet Office began an inquiry into her conduct after Sir Philip Rutnam, the most senior Home Office official, resigned in February.

Sir Philip – who is suing for constructive dismissal – alleged staff felt that Ms Patel had “created fear”. The home secretary has always strongly denied allegations of bullying.

If proven, could Priti Patel lose her job?

Newsnight’s Political Editor Nick Watt reports and Kirsty Wark is joined in the studio by shadow home office minister Holly Lynch, Conservative MP Dehenna Davison and general secretary of the FDA union, Dave Penman.
