Tulisa drug supply probe: We are innocent

Mike GLC, who was arrested and bailed along with Tulisa, spoke outside Belgravia police station this afternoon. He said the pair were innocent and denied he was a drug dealer.

We are innocent. We haven't been charged.

Anyone can edit or chop things together on video.

The truth will come out in the end. I don't want to go into much more detail.

I am going home to be with my family. This is ruining my life. I am not a drug dealer. I have never sold drugs in my life.

Mike GLC added that any evidence caught on camera had been "taken out of context" and the duo were "set up".

Today’s arrest of former X Factor judge Tulisa Contostavlos comes after the Metropolitan Police said its officers were "considering" information following an article in the Sun on Sunday.

The newspaper suggested Contostavlos had acted as a go-between in a drug deal by introducing a journalist to an alleged supplier.

The report suggested half an ounce of cocaine changed hands as a result of the deal conducted at London's Dorchester Hotel.
