A second woman has accused former US Vice-President Joe Biden of inappropriate touching, as the leading Democrat mulls a White House bid.

Amy Lappos said Biden had touched her face with both hands and rubbed noses with her a decade ago, reports BBC.

The allegation comes after another women, Lucy Flores, said Biden kissed her on the back of her head at a campaign event.

Biden has said he did not believe he has ever acted inappropriately.

The former Delaware senator, who served as Barack Obama’s vice-president in 2009-17, is seen as a possible frontrunner in the race for the Democratic presidential nomination.

Lappos, a 43-year-old former aide to a Democratic congressman, said Mr Biden touched her inappropriately at a fundraiser in a private home in Hartford, Connecticut, in 2009.
