“The allegation was against the former Commissioner of Police, Mr Ian McGrail. Shortly before 7am this morning, Mr McGrail was arrested at his home on suspicion of sexual assault.”

Mr McGrail was taken to New Mole House Police Station for questioning and was charged. He will appear before the Magistrates’ Court tomorrow, Friday 14 April.
