Margaret Thatcher is claimed to have personally covered up child abuse allegations made against one of her senior ministers.
The Sunday People reports that the former prime minister warned the minister following allegations that he had sexually abused young boys at the home of one of his political allies in 1982.
An investigation by website Exaro for the paper has uncovered two victims of alleged child abuse who claim they were raped by an MP in luxury apartments near Westminster.
Meanwhile, The Observer has seen old letters sent to a young boy in a care home by a Labour peer. The paper says the letters raise “serious questions about the peer's motives”.
