Tory MP Michael Fabricant said he thought it was “out of character” after being told fellow MP Nigel Evans, from Lancashire, had sexually assaulted a young man, a court heard.

Mr Fabricant, the current vice chairman of the Conservative Party and MP for Lichfield, told the jury he heard the allegation about his “good friend” Evans in July, 2009.

Evans, the former deputy speaker of the House of Commons, is alleged to have groped a young man, a bi-sexual Westminster worker, who was sleeping on the settee at his home in Pendleton.
