    A top Conservative official has been arrested on suspicion of raping a teenage girl in the 1960s.
    As preparations for the Tory *Conference were underway last night, Tory vice-chairman Alan Lewis, 75, who was appointed by David Cameron, was held by police after a woman claimed she was attacked by him when she was a girl.
    Lewis, a black belt in karate and a promoter of Christian healing who claims to read the Bible every day, has now been released on bail.

    A Tory source told The Mirror the party "are in a state of shock."
    "It could not have come at a worse time. Alan’s arrest will become the talking point of next week’s conference.”
    The self-made tycoon, who owns the Crombie clothing chain and is thought to have a fortune of between 220 and 260 million, was reportedly arrested at a Manchester hotel while on a business trip.
    A Greater Manchester Police spokesman said: "A 75-year-old man was arrested following a complaint received earlier this year of an historic rape that occurred in the Manchester area in the late 60s.
    "The man was later bailed pending further inquiries. Specially-trained officers are providing support and welfare to the victim.''
    One of David Cameron’s closest allies, Mr Lewis was given his current role as Tory vice-chairman responsible for business relations in 2010 by the Prime Minister.
    In 1990, he was made a CBE for his services as chairman of the Confederation of British Industry's initiative to prepare British businesses to the single market.

    In the '60's? I find this suspect. I can't help suspecting his massive money might be a factor. This was rather a long time to wait.
