Westminster locked in war of words over child sex claims as top MP reported over abuse insists: ‘I’m not Jimmy Savile’

The row over the Westminster child sex scandal took a dramatic turn last night when the Labour politician reported to police for allegedly abusing boys declared: ‘I am not a paedophile.’

The allegations against the MP, a former Minister, include that he abused a boy in a mental health unit, was linked to a rent-boy brothel, and used his position to force police to let him off.

A week after the accusations were disclosed by this newspaper, the defiant MP claimed he is the victim of a smear campaign.

But the Conservative MP who reported the allegations to police is standing by his actions. He says some of the alleged crimes occurred as recently as 18 months ago and that police are investigating.

The Labour MP, who cannot be named for legal reasons, told The Mail on Sunday: ‘I am completely innocent of these outrageous accusations. They are malicious and unfounded. I have never abused any young boys. I am not some kind of Jimmy Savile figure. I am not gay, I am happily married.
