Labour MP calls for police investigation into abuse claims

Labour MP Simon Danczuk told the House of Commons:

We need to make be sure that this type of investigation takes place now and that those victims get a chance to have their voices heard.

He added:

As new victims of abuse in Rochdale come forward to speak of what happened in Cambridge House, Greater Manchester Police should consider re-opening this case and I would call upon the minister to do what all in his powers to bring police files from previous investigations into Smith to light.
