The son of security minister Admiral Lord West has been arrested for alleged drug offences. Alex West, 25, a journalist, was held with a suspected drugs dealer outside a nightclub in Hackney, East London. He was allegedly approached in the club and asked if he would like to buy cocaine. It is understood Mr West was filmed by CCTV outside.
Ex-navy head Lord West was 'furious' last night. He said: 'drugs are illegal, they ruin lives.'
Hmm. Remind me which paper 25-year-old journalist Alex West works for again? Oh. That's right.
