Charlie Elphicke still does not know what he is accused of
PA

MP Charlie Elphicke says he is still unaware of what he has been accused of, two months on from his suspension from the Conservative Party.

The Dover and Deal representative had "serious allegations" made against him, and was referred to the police.

Speaking earlier, the former party whip maintained his innocence: “It’s now two months since I was accused of unspecified allegations.

"To this day, I have not been interviewed by the police and they have not told me what I am accused of or who my accuser is.”

Earlier Prime Minister Theresa May refused to comment on his suspension.

New customs checkpoints may need to be built "inland" at British ports to handle the increased workload after Brexit, a senior official has said.

Karen Wheeler, director general of borders at Revenue and Customs, said new infrastructure would be needed to "facilitate" customs controls and it would be up to ports to decide where to locate them.

But space was tight at some ports, so they might have to be inland, she added.

Labour's Meg Hillier said this would be alarming news for cash-strapped councils in port towns.

Ms Hillier, the MP who chairs the public accounts committee, said local councils in places like Plymouth, Holyhead or Dover, were facing real financial challenges and would be potentially be alarmed at this "new revelation".
