Speaking outside Preston police station this afternoon, Nigel Evans MP said:
Clearly we want closure of this as soon as possible and I carry on assisting this inquiry fully and openly.
I continue to refute all allegations, and in the meantime can I say that I'm extremely grateful for the huge amount of support and love that I have received from my family, my friends and my constituents, and indeed people throughout the country who have contacted me.
He was released on bail until September 10th pending further inquiries.
