Police have submitted evidence to the Crown Prosecution Service four months after Lord Janner’s home was raided as part of investigation into historic allegations of sex abuse.

Leicestershire Police confirmed in December that officers had searched a property in north London and said that the Labour peer and co-founder of the Holocaust Educational Trust had not been arrested.

His lawyer, Christopher David of WilmerHale, told the Jewish News at the time the former Board of Deputies president was assisting police with their enquiries.

A police statement today said: “Leicestershire Police has been liaising with the Crown Prosecution Service over recent months, and the CPS has been advising on taking the investigation forward. We have submitted the evidence gathered so far to the Crown Prosecution Service and other enquiries are continuing.

“Support for victims or anyone else affected by child abuse is available 24 hours a day from the National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children (NSPCC).”
