Metropolitan Police confirm investigation into Patrick Grady sexual harassment claims dropped Parliament UK

A police investigation into sexual harassment allegations against former SNP MP Patrick Grady has been dropped.

The Glasgow North MP suspended his party membership after it was reported that the Metropolitan Police would investigate the claims against him.

Last month, the Met said it had received an allegation from a third party of sexual assault reported to have taken place at Folgate Street in London in October 2016.

The force have now confirmed that following enquiries which included speaking to the alleged victim, no further action would be taken at this time.

A spokesperson for the Met said: “On Wednesday, 22 June police received a third party allegation of sexual assault that is said to have taken place in October 2016 at a commercial premises in Folgate Street, E1.

“Officers carried out enquiries including speaking to the alleged victim. There will be no further police action at this time”

After he stepped back as an SNP MP, Grady now sits as an independent candidate.

Grady has been contacted for comment.
