Brit businessman worth £700m ‘waved dildo at PA and spread condoms at party’

A British businessman worth £700 million allegedly waved a dildo at his PA and put out bowls of condoms at Christmas parties – as staff come forward with a range of allegations.

Lawrence Jones, 51, who attended Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s wedding at Windsor Castle last year, runs cloud computing firm UKFast in Manchester.

It offers Bupa health insurance, trips to his holiday homes in Switzerland and Wales, and a range of other perks.

However, the married-dad-of-four has now been hit with two accusations of sexual assault and a raft of unwanted advances, the Financial Times reports.

One woman, who was 20 when she started working for the company as Jones’ PA, said he took her to a sex shop and thrust a dildo in her face.

She asked: “In what world do you take a young girl to a sex shop three days after hiring her?”

Another female worker said she was molested by Jones at his homes in Wales and Switzerland.

She said: “(He) would wake me up with his hands under the duvet.

“It was frightening. He would have his hands under my knickers.”

The second alleged sexual assault victim did not want the details of her story to be published.

At a Christmas party in 2016, bowls filled with condoms were supposedly spread around the venue.

One worker claimed it was like working in a “brothel” in a WhatsApp chat, according to the FT.

Jones referred to himself as “Loz” or “LJ” at work, walked around the office-bare chested, and sat in meetings with female staff on his lap, it is claimed.

Another woman said the entrepreneur called her into his office as he was having his hair cut.

Jones allegedly put his fingers on his nipples and asked her: “Am I making you wet?”

The tech giant has declared that all the accusations are untrue.

He told the newspaper: “They are also hurtful and damaging, especially to my wife, our family, and the UKFast team.

“We have dedicated 20 years of our lives to UKFast and we are hugely proud of how amazing the business that we have built together is.”

Jones added about his company: “We take great pride in the fact that our team have over the past 10 years been responsible for UKFast featuring regularly in the Sunday Times’ ‘Best Companies to Work For’ list and similarly in the ‘Great Place to Work’ list.”

Back in 2015, Jones was awarded an MBE from the Queen for services to the digital economy.

UKFast also says it has worked with more than 50 schools and colleges to support 60,000 young people across Greater Manchester.

Daily Star Online has approached the company for further comment.
