Lord McAlpine 'angry' over abuse claim


Tory peer Lord McAlpine has spoken of his anger after a BBC Newsnight report led to him being wrongly implicated in child abuse allegations.

The former Conservative party treasurer told BBC Radio 4's The World at One he should have been contacted beforehand.

He said about being wrongly under suspicion: "You just think there's something wrong with the world."

Some of those involved in deciding to run the report on care homes in north Wales face disciplinary measures.

The full interview with Lord McAlpine is available on iPlayer Radio.
