A former resident of a care home in North Wales has apologised for mistakenly identifying former senior Conservative politician Lord McAlpine in an historic abuse case.
Steve Messham released a statement via the Bureau of Investigative Journalism website tonight.
In the statement, he says: "I want to offer my sincere and humble apologies to [Lord McAlpine] and his family."
He adds: "This is not the person I identified...in the early 1990s."
Lord McAlpine spoke out earlier today saying the allegations linking him to the abuse were "wholly false and seriously defamatory".
