Embattled Danczuk faces police inquiry over rape allegation

Simon Danczuk, the Labour MP who was suspended after sending sexual messages to a teenager, is facing a police investigation after being accused of rape.

The MP for Rochdale came under further pressure at the weekend when his first wife accused him of drug use and alcohol-fuelled bullying during their marriage.

A disciplinary investigation by the Labour party into the MP’s conduct is likely to be put on hold after a spokesman for Lancashire police said last night: “We can confirm that we have received a report of a rape dating back to 2006. We are in the very early stages of an investigation and inquiries are ongoing. The complaint relates to a 49-year-old man.”

Mr Danczuk, 49, said: “These claims are malicious, untrue and extremely upsetting. The police have not been in touch with me, but I will co-operate fully with any inquiries and am confident my name will be promptly cleared.”
