The Scottish Conservatives are investigating reports that one of their MPs left the House of Commons bar accompanied by police following claims of “sexual touching”.
The alleged incident, which is believed to have involved MP Ross Thomson, took place at the Strangers’ Bar in the Palace of Westminster on Tuesday night.
Three men, including the 31-year-old Aberdeen South MP, were said to have been involved before officers were alerted.
Police said no one was arrested and no formal allegations were made.
A Met Police spokesman said: “Police were called at approximately 11pm to a bar within the Palace of Westminster following a report of sexual touching.
“Officers attended and spoke to the parties involved – three men in their 20s and 30s.
“However, no formal allegations were made to the officers and no arrests were made.”
A Scottish Conservative spokesman added: “We are aware of reports of an incident last night and the matter is being looked into.
“We have no further comment to make at this stage.”
Thomson has been an MP since the 2017 general election and is a well-known Brexit supporter.
In April last year he was branded a “disgrace” after joking he was channelling “his inner dictator” while on a visit to Saddam Hussein’s former parade ground.
