MANCHESTER, England (AP) — U.K. Prime Minister Boris Johnson faced political opposition and personal allegations today as he tried to fulfil his pledge to lead Britain out of the European Union in just over a month.

As he tried to energize Conservative members and lawmakers at the party’s annual conference, Johnson was forced to deny a journalist’s claim that he had grabbed her thigh at a private lunch two decades ago.

Sunday Times columnist Charlotte Edwardes says the incident took place when she worked at The Spectator, a conservative newsmagazine, while Johnson was its editor.
