Police probe sex abuse allegations at kids' home at centre of Mirror investigation
Police have been probing sex abuse allegations at a children’s home linked to a paedophile MP “cover-up” exposed by the Mirror.
A man has claimed he was assaulted there in the 80s, says a source.
Officers of the Metropolitan Police Child Abuse Investigation Command are believed to have been examining the allegations which relate to at least one former member of care home staff.
The news comes as detectives from the same unit this week begin examining claims police failed to properly investigate abuse allegations linked to at least one MP.
Det Chief Insp Clive Driscoll said the Yard interfered with his 1999 probe into the home in Lambeth, South London, after he named politicians as suspects.
