POLICE have searched the House of Lords office of Labour peer Lord Greville Janner in connection with historic child sex abuse allegations.

Leicestershire Police confirmed its officers searched part of the House of Lords in March and said the former MP had not been arrested. A spokesman said the search was carried out in line with Lords' procedures and monitored by senior officials. The search follows a raid of the life peer's home in Barnet, north London last year.

Lord Janner, a father of three, was an MP for 27 years, and became a peer in 1997.
