Blair has 'no recollection' of minister sex abuse claims

Tony Blair's office has issued a statement saying the former Prime Minister has "no recollection" of being told one of his ministers was suspected of involvement in a paedophile ring.

The allegations relate to attacks thought to have taken place at a children's home in Brixton, south London in the early 1980s.

A Daily Mirror investigation claims an investigation into the case was deliberately halted when allegations were made against an unnamed member of Mr Blair's government.

Mr Blair has absolutely no ­recollection of this ever being brought to his attention.

Of course if there is evidence of any wrongdoing that should be handed to the relevant ­authorities for full investigation.
