Peter Mandelson phoned Jeffrey Epstein to seek a personal favour while the disgraced US financier was serving a sentence for child sex offences, according to a TV documentary.

As de facto Deputy Prime Minister to Gordon Brown in 2009, Lord Mandelson asked Epstein – who was then on day release – to arrange a meeting with a billionaire New York banker.

Channel 4's Dispatches allege Epstein agreed instantly. A friend of Epstein said the financier 'sorted' a meeting between Lord Mandelson – whom he called 'Petie' – and Jamie Dimon, the billionaire chairman of US investment bank JP Morgan.

At the time, Epstein, who killed himself in August, was serving an 18-month sentence after pleading guilty to procuring a 14-year-old girl for prostitution.
