A spokesman for the Metropolitan Police said: “Police were called at approximately 23:00hrs on February 5 to a bar within the Palace of Westminster following a report of sexual touching.

“Officers attended and spoke to the parties involved – three men in their 20s and 30s.

“However, no formal allegations were made to the officers and no arrests were made.”

A Scottish Conservative Party spokesman said: “We’re aware of reports of an incident last night in the Strangers Bar and we’re looking into it.”
