Police in Scotland are reportedly investigating a historic sex abuse complaint made against Labour peer Lord Janner.
According to the Daily Mail, it is said to relate to claims Janner took the teenage boy north of the border in the 1970s and sexually assaulted him.
Asked whether a new investigation had been launched, Police Scotland, while not confirming a name, said officers are carrying out a probe into a historic complaint.
Detective Chief Superintendent Lesley Boal said: "Police Scotland is conducting an investigation into an historic complaint and, as such, it would be inappropriate to comment.
"Police Scotland is absolutely committed to preventing all forms of child abuse and to keeping children safe while bringing perpetrators of abuse to justice, regardless of the passage of time."
Last month the Crown Prosecution Service, covering England and Wales, said it would review its decision not to charge Lord Janner over allegations of historic child sex abuse.
The 86-year-has denied the previous allegations against him.
