An alleged victim of the late Liberal MP, Cyril Smith - who has been accused of sexually abusing boys in his home town of Rochdale - has told the Guardian newspaper that he was assaulted by the MP in the Houses of Parliament as other politicians walked by, unaware of what was happening.
The man, who says he was 17 at the time the assault took place, says the incident followed 18 months of grooming by the MP.
The revelations came as former Liberal leader Lord Steel said he had heard rumours about Smith carrying out corporal punishment on boys, but said the party did not investigate the claims.
