Proctor: 'I have nothing to add to this Kafka-esque fantasy'

Former Tory MP Harvey Proctor has said he is assisting police with its enquiries but continued to deny being part of a "rent boy ring".

Detectives from the Metropolitan Police's Operation Midlands have been searching his home, which is located within the grounds of Belvoir Castle, near Grantham, Leicestershire, as part of an investigation into historical child sex claims.

Earlier in an interview with BBC Radio 4's Today programme, Mr Proctor denied attending sex parties with other MPs in the 1970s and 1980s and said he knew nothing of an alleged VIP paedophile ring in Westminster.

Addressing the media later, Mr Proctor continued to deny the allegations saying: "I have nothing to add to this Kafka-esque fantasy".
