Child abuse claims: Government 'slow' on inquiry - Miliband

There is evidence at least 20 prominent figures - including former MPs and government ministers - abused children for "decades", a former child protection manager has claimed.

Peter McKelvie, whose allegations led initially to a 2012 police inquiry, said a "powerful elite" of paedophiles carried out "the worst form" of abuse.

The government has announced two reviews into claims of abuse.

Labour leader Ed Miliband accused the government of being "slow and piecemeal" in its reaction to the claims.
