ASH­FORD MP Damian Green has spo­ken of his anger at be­ing ar­rested over al­le­ga­tions of leak­ing sen­si­tive Home Of­fice in­for­ma­tion to the me­dia.

Mr Green, 51, was ar­rested in his of­fice at the House of Com­mons last Thurs­day and quizzed at a Lon­don po­lice sta­tion for nine hours be­fore be­ing re­leased on bail.

His homes in Char­ing and Lon­don and his con­stituency of­fice were searched by teams of anti-ter­ror­ist of­fi­cers.

As a huge po­lit­i­cal row over his de­ten­tion con­tin­ued this week, Mr Green thanked scores of con­stituents who have of­fered sup­port to him and his wife Ali­cia.

His agent Gor­don Wil­liams said the MP re­mained “as­ton­ished, an­gry and frus­trated” and had been dis­tressed by the im­pact of the raids on his wife and two chil­dren.
