Nigel Evans MP has made the following statement:
Yesterday I was interviewed by the police concerning two complaints, one of which dates back four years, made by two people who are well-known to each other, and who, until yesterday, I regarded as friends.
The complaints are completely false and I cannot understand why they have made, especially as I have continued to socialise with one as recently as last week.
I appreciate the way the police have handled this in such a sensitive manner and I’d like to thank my colleagues, friends and members of the public who have expressed their support and, like me, a sense of incredulity at these events.
