"The National has been told the police had wanted to interview the former Home Secretary within the next few weeks. "I've heard he had been told to attend a police station very recently – sometime this month," one source told The National."
"The death of the Conservative peer was surrounded in mystery after it emerged last night that officers went to his Pimlico address and that a post mortem examination would be carried out."
"A former Minister last night took the sensational step of stating that Leon Brittan stood accused of ‘multiple child rape’. Tom Watson, a Defence and Cabinet Office Minister under Labour, said he had spoken to a man who said the former Home Secretary raped him as a child, and a woman who said he raped her in 1967. He added that he knew of two other similar cases."
"Mr Watson said: ‘Many others knew of these allegations and chose to remain silent. I will not. The police must continue their investigations.’"
