This from the Daily Mail, no less:
David Prior, the son of former Conservative cabinet minister Jim Prior and chairman of Cawston Park Hospital in Cawston, Norfolk, was arrested along with three other men, by police investigating allegations of fraud at a psychiatric hospital.
The four men, who are all associated with the hospital, are being held at police stations across Norfolk on suspicion of financial irregularities at Cawston Park.
Mr Prior, who is chairman of the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital NHS Trust, was MP for North Norfolk from 1997 to 2001.
The police spokesman said: "Norfolk Constabulary is investigating allegations of financial irregularities at Cawston Park Hospital - part of Chancellor Care Limited.
"These matters were referred to the police following an investigation by the NHS Counter Fraud and Security Services and the Constabulary is now investigating this allegation with them.
"Early this morning warrants were executed and a number of people associated with Cawston Park were arrested.
"Following this morning's operation, officers have seized a number of items from the company's main office at Cawston Park and from the homes of those people arrested.
"These items are currently in the process of being copied."
Detective Chief Inspector Chris Hobley of Norfolk Police stressed the investigation concerned alleged financial irregularities at the hospital and not individual patient care.
It would of course be entirely wrong for anyone to jump to any conclusions about this unfortunate development.
And we must wait the conclusion of the proper police investigation before we will know whether any charges are likely to follow.
In all the circumstances, it would not be appropriate to comment further.
