Police Quiz M.P. Over Alleged Rape

SIMON DANCZUK, the controversial suspended Labour M.P. for Rochdale, was yesterday interviewed under a police caution at Rossendale police station over an allegation of rape.
 Yesterday, a Lancashire Constabulary spokesperson said:
'A 49 year old man from Greater Manchester has today (Tuesday, January 12th) voluntarily attended a police station in Lancashire where he was spoken to following an allegation of rape.  The man attended by prior appointment and was not arrested. He was interviewed under caution.'
 Mr. Danczuk vigorously denies the claim of rape which dates back to 2006.  The interview under caution is in response to a complaint made by his first wife Sonia Rossington, aged 39, to the Lancashire Constabulary on January 4th, 2016.
 A spokesperson for the Lancashire police said:
'Inquiries are on-going.  We take all allegations of a sexual nature extremely seriously and understand how difficult it can be for victims to have the confidence to come forward.'
 Photos of Simon Danczuk entering and leaving the Rossendale police station, dressed in a black Crombie overcoat with matching shoes and blue suit and tie, and accompanied by a woman carrying a file, were circulated in the media.
