Partner Susan Thompson was interviewed on BBC Radio Surrey re the news that the Deputy Prime Minister and Justice Secretary Dominic Raab has resigned after a workplace bullying inquiry.

Susan discussed her wider reflections on the case, and whether or not there is a need for better clarification of 'bullying'.

She explained that, if someone is bullied because of a protected characteristic such as sex or race, then it can amount to unlawful discrimination and/or harassment, protected under the Equality Act.

Susan also addressed the sensitive issue of where 'firm management' crosses the line and becomes bullying.
