British Conservative MP Charlie Elphicke has been suspended by the party over unspecified “allegations,” the Tory chief whip says.

Julian Smith released a statement Friday, saying, “I have suspended the Conservative party whip from Charlie Elphicke MP following serious allegations that have been referred to the police.”

In a tweeted message, Elphicke denied any wrongdoing, noting the media had been told before him.

“The party tipped off the press before telling me of my suspension. I am not aware of what the alleged claims are and deny any wrongdoing.”

The party provided no further details about what the allegations are related to, or who made a complaint.  Nor the Metropolitan police gave any immediate comment on whether it had received a complaint.

This comes as Prime Minister Theresa May announced a new party code of conduct over a growing sexual harassment scandal.

According to a report last week, four British lawmakers had been accused of sexually abusing women at Westminster.
