Ed Miliband was warned about “stomach-churning” allegations against Labour peer Lord Janner six months before the peer was suspended, it was claimed.
Campaigning MP Simon Danczuk wrote to the then party leader tipping him off about accusations swirling round the life peer.
But Labour did not take action until the Crown Prosecution Service went public with allegations against Lord Janner.
He was suspended on April 16 after Director of Public Prosecutions announced there was sufficient evidence to charge him with multiple counts of child abuse but that a prosecution could not go ahead due to the “severity” of his dementia.
But on October 6 last year, Rochdale MP Mr Danczuk wrote to Mr Miliband saying he had been “visited by three senior officers from Leicestershire Police” and that the alleged abuse disclosed to him relating to Lord Janner case was “stomach-churning”
