Harvey Proctor: I Want To Settle Out Of Court With Met Police

The former MP was falsely accused of historic abuse and today got a personal apology from the Met chief Sir Bernard Hogan-Howe - but intends to proceed with legal action against the force.

Proctor spoke to Iain Dale in the LBC studio, explaining how he was investigated by police after allegations made by an alleged victim known as "Nick".

Proctor's home was searched as part of the investigation, which he told LBC last week had left him "destitute".

He says that Sir Bernard admitted the handling of the abuse allegations had been a "blemish" on the reputation of the Met. But Proctor also told Iain that he would be proceeding with legal action against the force, with the aim of settling out of court.
