The Ministry of Justice has been inundated with complaints of alleged bullying by Justice Secretary Dominic Raab, BBC Newsnight has been told.

Mr Raab - who is also the deputy prime minister - is already facing an investigation into two complaints made about his conduct.

However, the BBC has learnt some of his ex-colleagues want the inquiry to be widened to include new complaints.

Mr Raab has denied any allegations of bullying.

He has insisted he behaved professionally at all times and that he looks forward to dealing with the complaints transparently rather than dealing with anonymous comments in the media.

Mr Raab is a close ally of Rishi Sunak and Downing Street has said he has the PM's full confidence.
