Ms Swinson made the comments in reference to Andrew's response to a question by Newsnight presenter Emily Maitlis about Epstein victim Virginia Giuffre.

The interview comes within the wake of explosive claims by Epstein's alleged teenage intercourse slave, Virginia Giuffre, that Epstein - who took his personal life in his Manhattan lockup over the summer season - had coerced her into having intercourse with Prince Andrew and different highly effective males when she was underage.

He added that he now regrets going to stay with Jeffrey. At no point in 60 minutes did he find the time to condemn child sex trafficking around the world or express any remorse for what's happened to the victims of Jeffrey Epstein.
