I am delighted Durham police have investigated and concluded that neither I or my team have a case to answer in relation to the work visit in Durham on 30th April 2021.

 

I would like to thank officers for their professionalism and diligence throughout the investigation.

 

However, it is unfortunate that the desire of some Conservative politicians to score political points has led to so much of Durham Police’s time being focused on a matter that was already investigated, especially when their resources are already under significant pressure.

 

After the pressure of theuu last few months, I am enormously appreciative for the understanding my staff and their families have shown in the face of significant intrusion from the right wing media, including their children and parents being doorstepped.

 

Now that this matter has been put to rest, I will continue to focus my efforts on serving my constituents both in Durham and in Westminster, as well as on holding what is left of this shambolic government to account during this cost of living crisis.

 

I would like to thank my solicitor, Martin Howe of Howe + Co for their advice and guidance in this high profile matter.
