A former Conservative MP is reportedly set to criticise the police following a now-closed year-long investigation into child abuse allegations against him.

Metropolitan Police chief Sir Bernard Hogan-Howe.

Harvey Proctor will claim allegations he himself made about the criminal conduct of his accusers were ignored by Scotland Yard, according to the Daily Telegraph.

Counter-allegations made against 'Nick', whose claims launched the Operation Midland probe into abuse by high profile figures, were blocked, Mr Proctor will apparently argue.

“Harvey believes that his allegations about alleged wasting of police time and allegedly perverting the course of justice have been deliberately ignored,” a friend of the former MP told the paper.

“At no point have the Metropolitan Police come back to him or his solicitor to update them on the progress of these claims – yet they should have done so.”

Mr Proctor has previously said the police are guilty of a “homosexual witch-hunt” by pursuing allegations against him.

Operation Midland was closed down last week with no charges brought.
