Nigel Waterson receives police apology

An update on one of the stories mentioned in our previous coverage of Nigel Waterson, the now former Tory MP for Eastbourne. 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.
