David Mellor was questioned by police over an alleged racist rant at a security guard, it has been reported.

The QC and former Conservative MP shouted at the Polish worker for not standing directly outside his home in St Katharine Docks, and then clashed over the telephone with a Nepalese officer in the guard’s office, a newspaper alleges.

A spokesman for Scotland Yard said a man, whose identity he would not confirm, was questioned under caution in May last year following an incident in March.

He said: “A 64-year-old man from Tower Hamlets was interviewed under caution by police on suspicion of a racially aggravated public order offence that took place on 26 March 2013 at St Katharine Docks.”
