Jack Straw and Theresa May death threats: Man arrested
A man has been arrested on suspicion of making threats to kill the former Foreign Secretary Jack Straw and the Home Secretary Theresa May.
The threats were allegedly made in a phone call to the office of Rossendale and Darwen MP, Jake Berry, on 18 April.
Lancashire Police arrested a 33-year-old man who works for Blackburn with Darwen Council.
The suspect, who is from Blackburn where Mr Straw is the local MP, has been released on police bail.
Mr Straw said he was aware of the situation adding "as criminal proceedings are happening there's not much more I can say."
"Theresa knows about the situation as far as I am aware," he added.
Mr Straw held the positions of home secretary, then foreign secretary and leader of the House of Commons under Tony Blair.
Gordon Brown made him justice secretary in June 2007, a position he held until Labour's defeat at the 2010 election.
Theresa May is the current Home Secretary and Conservative MP for Maidenhead.
