A former psychiatric patient has claimed that Al Porter, the broadcaster and comedian, groped and kissed him while visiting a hospital in 2015.

The student, who is in his mid-twenties and who asked not to be named, spent almost six weeks as an inpatient in St Patrick’s after he was diagnosed with depression. He had previously made a suicide attempt.
