Two MPs have reportedly spoken to detectives about the senior Labour MP after hearing allegations he had abused boys.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 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.
“I was told that as far back as ten years ago, he was having young boys delivered to a hotel just a few hundred yards from a local police headquarters. But some of the cases were as recent as 18 months ago.
“The final straw came when I heard allegations that he had been abusing two youngsters in a mental health unit.
“After I was told about this, I thought for an hour or two and decided I would never forgive myself if this turned out to be another case like Jimmy Savile.
“I picked up the phone and made a call to a very senior police officer.”
The MP gave detectives names of the details of the alleged offences, he said. A second MP has also given information to the same force.
Last night a police spokesman declined to comment. But one of the MPs said a senior officer has since told him: “We are all over this MP.”
The accusations are likely to increase demands for a full inquiry into an alleged web of VIP paedophile rings operating at the heart of Westminster and the British Establishment from the 1970s to the 2000s.
Much of the abuse was alleged to have taken place at the Dolphin Square complex in Pimlico, where a large number of MPs had flats.
A BBC News team, headed by a journalist who specialises in investigating sex abuse crimes, has also had access to the latest allegations, the Mail on Sunday reported, and has already begun interviewing witnesses.
