Former Labour peer Lord Janner has died, aged 87 after a long illness.

Earlier this month he was deemed unfit to stand trial for a string of sex offences against boys dating back 50 years, due to a "deteriorating and irreversible" dementia, a High Court judge ruled.

Lord Janner was the MP for Leicester West between 1970 and 1997.
