Detectives investigating historical child abuse claims in North Wales care homes have arrested the half-brother of senior Conservative MP John Whittingdale.
Charles Napier, 65, was held under a new strand of an existing investigation into alleged child abuse in the early 1980s at the Elm Guest House in Barnes, south west London.
Mr Whittingdale, 53, chairman of the Commons Culture, Media and Sport Committee, said of his half-brother's arrest:
If allegations have been made, of course I accept the police should investigate this.
