Three women have come forward to allege that a former Liberal Democrat MP carried out abuse against them as girls.

Esther Baker waived her right to anonymity last week.

She spoke out about how she was raped by a politician, police officers and others in woods in Staffordshire.

She has also told police that she was sexually abused at a flat in London, which she now believes was in Dolphin Square, south London.

She said a former Labour cabinet minister, now dead, also sexually attacked her. 

She believes that a Lord and a judge were among her abusers.

She says that she was sexually abused from the age of six to at least 12.

Operation Hydrant was set up by police to bring together all allegations of historical child sexual abuse.

It states that there are 1,433 male suspects of which 216 are dead. Some 506 are unidentified. Some 76 are politicians.
