    A police investigation into allegations of historic child abuse against Jewish peer Lord Janner has moved forward.

    Leicestershire Police announced today that it had submitted evidence to the Crown Prosecution Service for consideration.

    In a statement the force said: “Leicestershire Police has been liaising with the Crown Prosecution Service over recent months, and the CPS has been advising on taking the investigation forward.

    “We have submitted the evidence gathered so far to the CPS and other enquiries are continuing.

    “Support for victims or anyone else affected by child abuse is available 24 hours a day from the NSPCC.”

    A property owned by Lord Janner was searched last December as part of an “ongoing criminal inquiry”.

    Officers spent two days at the apartment in north-west London. Lord Janner was not arrested or interviewed and his lawyers said the 85-year-old was helping police with the investigation.

    Greville Janner QC, Lord Janner of Braunstone, was Labour MP for Leicester West for 27 years before stepping down in 1997. The father-of-three is founding patron of the Holocaust Education Trust.

    He has held a number of leading positions on groups serving world Jewry and is a former president of the Board of Deputies.
