The woman - known as “Jane” to protect her identity - told Exaro how the ex-minister, before he became an MP, tricked her into his flat, locked her in, then raped her. She was a 19-year-old student at the time.
Jane believes his modus operandi was well practised and is convinced that she is not his only victim.
We are identifying neither the former Conservative cabinet minister nor the alleged victim for legal reasons. Jane gave a detailed account of the alleged attack, and of how the Metropolitan Police Service decided against proceeding with the case.I will admit to being too fond of political scandal and gossip, but it is well worth listening to Jane's story.
