An adviser to David Cameron has been arrested on suspicion of raping an underage girl.
Technology entrepreneur Doug Richard, who appeared in the first two series of the BBC show Dragons’ Den, was questioned by police earlier this month and released on bail until March.
The 56-year-old multi-millionaire denies the allegations.
The US-born businessman has worked closely with Mr Cameron over several years. In 2011 he went on an official Government trip to Africa and also worked as an adviser to Chancellor George Osborne.
