Nigel Waterson receives police apology

An update on one of the stories involving Nigel Waterson, the now former Conservative MP for Eastbourne after Stephen Lloyd won the seat for the Liberal Democrats at the 2010 general election.

As ConservativeHome reports:

It was reported in 2008 that Nigel Waterson, then the Conservative MP for Eastbourne, had been arrested for allegedly assaulting his teenage children.

The Metropolitan Police has now apologised to Mr Waterson, and agreed to pay him damages and costs. It accepts that the accusations made against him were “wholly unfounded”, and apologises for any distress caused.
