The EDP reports that David Prior, the former Tory MP for North Norfolk who was defeated by Lib Dem Norman Lamb in 2001, has been arrested.
I don't want to comment on the case. All I can say is that I have campaigned against David Prior when he was MP and he was an extremely effective and diligent MP. Since his defeat in 2001 I have also met him in relation to his NHS trust job, and I found him helpful and very much the gentleman in our dealings.
Before Tories complain about me posting this, one of the aims of this blog is to report on Norfolk matters, and this is a Norfolk matter.
