Price not quizzed over rape claim

Katie Price
Ms Price claims that she was attacked by a famous celebrity

Model Katie Price will not be making a statement to Surrey Police over claims she was raped by an unnamed celebrity, the force has said.

It also denied reports that officers had visited Ms Price, 31, to speak to her about the allegation.

But a spokesman said she was seen on Thursday about reports in the media of bogus police officers contacting her.

The claims she was attacked by a "famous celebrity" first surfaced in her column in a national magazine.

Ms Price, who models under the name Jordan, said she had no plans to make a formal complaint and would "absolutely never" name the celebrity.

'Lack of information'

Surrey Police said although they had recorded an incident no allegation had been made and they were unlikely to investigate the claim unless Ms Price co-operated with officers.

A spokesman added: "Surrey Police treats all reports of sexual offences very seriously and investigates them thoroughly, encouraging anyone who may have been a victim to come forward and providing specialist officers to support them.

"Based on our enquiries and the lack of substantiated information - particularly around locations and dates of any allegations - we have recorded an incident, but due to its very historic nature we are dependent on Miss Price's co-operation to formally record a crime and continue any investigation."

The force said that if any new information came to light it would be investigated.

Ms Price split from her pop singer husband Peter Andre in May.
