Lord Brittan 'interviewed over historical rape allegation'

Former Home Secretary Leon Brittan is reported to have been interviewed by police over a historical allegation of rape.

The Independent on Sunday says Lord Brittan, as he is now known, is understood to have been questioned last month about the claim, which relates to an incident in London in 1967.

The Tory peer reportedly strongly denies the allegations.
