Lord Janner dies, aged 87, after long illness

Lord Janner, the former Labour peer and MP ruled unfit to stand trial on child sexual abuse charges, has died.

He had been suffering from dementia and died peacefully at his home on Saturday aged 87, his family said.

The peer had been accused of 22 counts of historical sex offences against boys – allegations his family denied.

A “trial of the facts” set for April will no longer take place. A lawyer representing alleged victims said they had been denied justice.
