Mr Evans, a Deputy Speaker of the House of Commons, is tonight being questioned over claims made by the two alleged victims.
They claim to have been raped and sexually assaulted between July 2009 and March 2013 at his constituency. Both were in their twenties at the times of the attacks, although their exact ages have not been disclosed.
The Conservative MP was arrested at his home in Pendleton, Lancashire, this morning and is understood to be still in custody for questioning. The property has been searched by officers.
David Cameron, the Prime Minister, was informed of the arrest today, as was John Bercow, the Speaker of the House of Commons. http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/politics...on-of-rape.html
