Former Tory MP Harvey Proctor has been questioned for a second time by detectives investigating historical allegations of child sex abuse.
Mr Proctor was interviewed under caution by Metropolitan Police officers as part of Operation Midland, which was launched following allegations of a VIP paedophile ring.
Scotland Yard, who did not name Mr Proctor, said a man in his 60s had attended an interview by appointment earlier today and had not been arrested.
