Pompeii: Expert takes a look at the victims of Mount Vesuvius Almost 2,000 years ago Mount Vesuvius erupted in one of the deadliest volcanic eruptions…
The top Tory minister’s aide who was exposed by the Mirror for selling sex to ‘sugar daddies’ online has been named tonight as 20-year-old Rebecca Tott.
The Mirror had chosen to withhold her identity but she has since been identified by other newspapers this evening.
Earlier today she was suspended from her job as housing minister Dominic Raab’s diary secretary following revelations she had offered to have sex on the minister’s office desk.
Rebecca – who it can now be revealed was listed on a government website as having been on the Civil Service Fast Track scheme – had joked she would “love to get sacked” for romping with a client on her boss’s desk.
She also told our undercover reporter: “I know his every move” – prompting security concerns.
The Ministry of Housing has launched an urgent probe amid fears the aide made herself a blackmail target – and there have been calls for MI5 to investigate.
Rebecca is reported to have taken down all her social media accounts but she is still pictured on her sister Laura’s Instagram page, which has 79,000 followers.
Laura is a waitress in Channel 4 TV reality show First Dates.
Rebecca reportedly told The Sun: “This is having huge implications on us as a family.
“Obviously the allegations aren’t fantastic. They aren’t great for my career, but we’ll deal with that.”
The Mirror broke the story yesterday how Rebecca had listed herself on SeekingArrangment.com – a website well known for rich, older men using to meet younger women.
She told the Mirror’s undercover reporter, posing as a wealthy businessman, that for £750 he could have “full undisputed access to me”.
MirrorOnline reported earlier tonight how former Met royal protection chief Dai Davies has called on MI5 to step in.
He said: “The security services need to work with the Cabinet Office to establish who this woman has met and what she has told them.
"They need to know all they can about her activities. This is extremely worrying.“
And a former British intelligence officer added: “She could have been a target for recruitment by foreign intelligence services, even at her low-level, for long-term benefits.
“The worry is this individual’s access to sensitive documents and sites.”
Lisa worked in a building the Ministry for Housing, Communities and Local Government shares with the Home Office.
Her desk is said to be only a “stone’s throw” from Home Secretary Amber Rudd’s office.
The aide revealed her Whitehall role within minutes of meeting our reporter.
She told him Raab was “difficult”, “dismissive of women” and eats the same Pret a Manger meal every day.
After the story broke, Theresa May’s official spokesman said the Ministry of Housing was “looking into the circumstances” of the case.
The Ministry of Housing added: “There is no suggestion that any official information has been disclosed.”
