A senior Labour MP has been reported to police by Parliamentary colleagues over allegations he sexually abused boys, it has been claimed.
Two MPs reportedly passed on their concerns to police after hearing accusations against the unnamed MP stretching back at least a decade.
The accusations are latest in a string of claims that senior Westminster figures have been involved in child sex abuse, but are believed to be the first time a sitting MP has been implicated.
The two MPs, one Labour and one Tory, independently went to police about their Parliamentary colleague after being shocked by information they had received, the Sun reported.
Allegations included that the MP had young boys “delivered” to his room at a hotel near a police station and abused others at a hospital’s mental health unit.
One victim was left so terrified he fears for his life if he ever speaks out. The MP allegedly showed a liking for “young ragamuffins” and also displayed an “unhealthy” interest in the two young sons of a local councillor.
The first MP, who declined to be named, told the newspaper: “Several people who have never met one another were all telling me the same, or similar, stories of corruption, indecency and paedophile offences.
So, currently it’s gossip within the echo chamber.
Going to be interesting to see if it just stays that way, eh?
