The boss of business lobby group the CBI has stepped aside while an investigation takes place into complaints about his conduct at work.

The CBI said it took all matters of workplace conduct “extremely seriously”, but would not comment further until the probe was complete.

In a tweet, Mr Danker said he was “mortified” to hear that he had caused “offence or anxiety to any colleague”.

“It was completely unintentional, and I apologise profusely,” he wrote.

The formal complaint was made in January and involved a female CBI employee.
