A personal update from me…

You may have seen the news this week… unfortunately last month I was a victim of cyber flashing and malicious communications. I was approached by two different numbers on WhatsApp who purported to know me. The first messages came through when I was with my wife, the second came through 10 days later when I was in the office with my team. After I tried to verify who was messaging me, I was sent sexually explicit images. I immediately blocked the numbers and reported them to the police and Parliamentary security. I’d like to thank Leicestershire Police for supporting me through this as the police investigation continues.
