Women enjoying Christmas parties at an accounting giant will be offered ‘sober chaperones’ after a series of sexual harassment and bullying scandals at leading City firms.

Two assigned staff will be told to stick to soft drinks so they can ‘be responsible in an emergency situation’ and ‘ensure everybody can get home safely,’ according to an internal memo at BDO, quoted by the Financial Times.

The firm’s 3,700 staff in the UK were told in the memo from chief operating officer Andy Butterworth: ‘I know these precautionary measures might sound slightly excessive to some, but I think they are sensible for the wellbeing of our people.’
