The late Sir Clement Freud, broadcaster and senior MP in the Liberal party has been accused of abusing two girls in the late 1940’s and 1970’s.
Sylvia Woosley who was a close family friend alleges that Freud, who died in 2009 groomed and sexually abused her when she was 14 years old. Another woman who wishes to remain anonymous claims that Freud abused her as a child and raped her when she was 18 years old. The two women have told details of their abuse to ITV Exposure.
Scotland Yard is currently examining details of the abuse allegations and the possibility that Freud may have been associated with other abusers at the time of the claims.
