Nick Clegg 'revolted' by Westminster abuse claims

Nick Clegg says he is "keeping an open mind" about a possible public inquiry into child abuse allegations at Westminster in the 1980s.

The Deputy Prime Minster said the abuse claims were "revolting" and called on the police to deliver justice for the alleged victims.

On Saturday, David Cameron said a fresh review would carried out by a senior legal figure to look at the Home Office's initial handling of the allegations.

Mr Clegg told BBC Breakfast "more answers were needed" and didn't rule out a more wide-reaching probe, but said the focus for now should be on the police investigation.
