Cameron advisor: Doug Richard (right) [Image: Daily Mirror].

Remember Patrick Rock, the aide of David Cameron who was arrested early last year over possession of pornographic images of children? He’s currently on bail until February 27, having denied making an indecent image of a child and possessing a further 56 such images.

Well, it seems lightning can strike the same place twice (if only metaphorical lightning), as another Cameron aide has now been charged with indecency in relation to the under-aged.

His name is Doug Richard, and he has been arrested on suspicion of raping a girl aged 13. He is currently on bail, after being questioned by police.

The married 56-year-old, who was born in America, has strenuously denied the charges. He has been a policy advisor to George Osborne and David Cameron and has travelled with the prime minister on an official government trip to Africa.

Further details are available on the Daily Mirror website.
