Twenty people tell police they were abused by Cyril Smith

Twenty people have now come forward to claim they were victims of sexual abuse by Sir Cyril Smith.

At least one victim has told detectives he was raped by the politician, whose alleged child sex abuse activities at Knowl View school, a children's home in Rochdale, spanned nearly three decades.

Smith is alleged to have preyed on youngsters both at Knowl View, where five complainants have come forward, and another school in Rochdale, Cambridge House, where 10 complainants have spoken to police.
