TORY MP ACCUSED OF SEXUAL ASSAULT

'Sex Arrest' Tory MP: New Video Emerges

8:47pm UK, Friday June 10, 2011

Sky News has obtained video of the moments after a woman alleged she had been sexually assaulted by a Conservative MP.

Andrew Bridgen was arrested on Thursday morning after police received a complaint from a 29-year-old woman.

In a statement, the Conservative member says he has been targeted in a "mischievous and damaging" way.

The video was taken in the building where the assault allegedly took place and shows the woman sobbing and clearly in distress.

Sky News has decided not to broadcast this video to respect the privacy of the woman involved.

In it she is shown making a phone call in tears, claiming she has been groped by the man, who she says is an MP.

She said the alleged incident took place on a balcony. She said she made an excuse and ran out of the flat and injured her face as she fled.


I am naturally angry that I have been targeted in this mischievous and damaging way, and I will be taking advice about this.

Andrew Bridgen's statement
Mr Bridgen issued a statement saying: "The alleged content of this video offers nothing new, and merely repeats an assertion of which I am already aware.

"This assertion, which is demonstrably and provably untrue, is not supported by the facts, to which a witness exists, mainly that I was at no time alone with this woman and that no such assault took place".

"The allegations made against me are wholly false and without foundation. Fortunately, they are also demonstrably and provably false.

"I have been happy to co-operate fully with the police and I am completely confident that, after proper investigation, I will be fully exonerated.

"This has caused real hurt and distress to my friends and family, and must be a concern to my constituents.

"I am naturally angry that I have been targeted in this mischievous and damaging way, and I will be taking advice about this. But I would like to thank my constituents and colleagues for the many messages of support that I have received."

Mr Bridgen added that he did not plan to make any further statements while police investigations were under way.

A Scotland Yard spokesman said: "A 46-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of sexual assault against a 29-year-old woman at an address in SW1.

"He has been bailed to return on a date in mid-July."

Looks like this woman was trying to set the MP up.

I am not sure it is a 'set up' - will the Police do forensics and find anything on the woman. I wonder though coming on the heels of the Strauss-Khan incident it could be a copy-cat.

Theres a lot of it about at the moment isn't there.

I"m not saying the MP wasn"t with her during the evening, but who made the Videos of her crying? Why would she get in touch with Sky News and
not the Police? "groping" is not as serious as raping and I think she is either trying to sell a Story or maybe acting out of revenge.
