Edward Heath: Five Police Forces Investigate


Five police forces have confirmed they have received allegations of child sex abuse involving the former prime minister Sir Edward Heath.
Police in Jersey, Wiltshire, Hampshire, Kent and London are all investigating allegations involving the former politician. 
Late last night, the Hampshire force was the latest to confirm it is looking into allegations made against the former PM.
Earlier, police in Jersey said they were investigating claims that he would take children from care homes for a ride in his yacht.
Wiltshire Police, meanwhile, disclosed it has received a number of calls to a helpline it set up appealing for potential victims and witnesses.
Kent Police said it had received a report of a sexual assault against Sir Edward in East Kent in the 1960s.
Detectives are making initial inquiries and will get a full account of the complainant's story.
Finally, the Metropolitan Police is looking into accusations by a man, now aged 65.
He claims he was raped at the age of 12 by Sir Edward, in Mayfair, London.
A Metropolitan Police spokesman said: "In April 2015 an allegation of rape was made to the Metropolitan Police Service (MPS).
"An officer from Operation Fairbank interviewed the complainant that same month and obtained a full account. Support services were offered.
"However, after a full assessment of the allegation there were no lines of inquiry that could proportionately be pursued by the MPS."
He would not say anything more about why the decision had been taken.
It's also claimed the politician was seen by a Met Police detective going into a north London property where boys were abused in the '70s.
The first allegation against Sir Edward emerged on Monday.
Wiltshire Police disclosed the force was being investigated for failing to handle an apparent allegation made against the politician in the 1990s.
