From Windrush to Oxfam, the past 18 years has seen a series of controversies
The News of the World was brought down by hacking expose
Humanitarian groups have been aware of but failed to act on allegations of sexual exploitation and abuse by their own staff for years, according to a damning report from MPs on the Oxfam scandal.

The International Development Committee warned that the cases made public so far are only the “tip of the iceberg”, with under-reporting of abuse making it impossible to define the true scale of the “endemic” abuse across organisations, countries and institutions.

“The aid sector, collectively, has been aware of sexual exploitation and abuse by its own personnel for years, but the attention that it has given to the problem has not matched the challenge,” the MPs concluded.

The Oxfam scandal is just the latest in a long line of outrageous behaviour by individuals and organisations in the 21st century.

Here are some of the other major British scandals over the past 18 years:
