Mr O’Mara, who has announced plans to resign from his seat, apologised and said he had had “a complete mental breakdown”.

Ms Barnes started working for Mr O’Mara in June and said the “uncomfortable” messages began soon after.

She said she received a 17-paragraph message from the MP on WhatsApp two weeks ago, prompting her to quit.

“I am in tears and I am just like ‘this is it, I can’t go back now’,” she said.

“It almost makes me kind of shiver being spoken to by someone who is 17 years older than me, he is my boss, he’s an MP.”

In a statement Mr O’Mara said: “I am so sorry for the hurt and distress I have caused.

“I had a complete mental breakdown and I was not in my right mind when I sent those messages and I am deeply ashamed and scared that I did that.”

Mr O’Mara was elected as the Labour MP for the constituency in the 2017 general election, ousting former Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg.
