By Eleanor Perkins

Conservative MP Charlie Elphicke has denied any wrongdoing after he was suspended by his party following 'serious allegations.'

The MP for Deal and Dover since 2010 was suspended by the Conservative Party after the claims were reported to the police. 

However he claims the party tipped off the press before telling him of his suspension and is unaware of the claims being made against him.
