Arrest horrible, says freed heir

The heir to one of Britain's grandest titles was released from police custody yesterday and said the experience had been harrowing. Peter Curzon said: "I have been in the same clothes for five days and have not had a bath."

Mr Curzon, 47, whose father, Lord Scarsdale, lives in Kedlestone Hall in Derbyshire, one of Britain's finest country homes, was arrested by the High Court tipstaff for failing to pay pounds 575,000 to his ex-wife, Karen, and their 13-year-old daughter, Danielle. He was held at Charing Cross police station, London, pending the transfer of funds.
