Former Tory MP Harvey Proctor denies child murder and abuse claims


A former Tory MP has insisted he is "completely innocent" after he was questioned for a second time by detectives investigating claims he was involved in the murder and sexual abuse of children.

Harvey Proctor was interviewed under caution yesterday by Metropolitan Police officers working on Operation Midland, the inquiry launched following historical allegations of a VIP paedophile ring. 

Speaking at a press conference in central London today, Mr Proctor laid out graphic details of allegations made against him by a man with the pseudonym "Nick".

He said: "They amount to just about the worst allegations anyone can make against a person, including the multiple murder of children, their torture, grievous bodily harm, rape and sexual child abuse.

"I'm completely innocent of all these allegations.

"I'm a homosexual. I'm not a murderer or a paedophile.

"This whole catalogue of events has wrecked my life."
