CPS considering evidence against Greville Janner

From BBC News:
The Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) is considering evidence against Lord Janner as part of an inquiry into allegations of historical child abuse. 
The London home of the 85-year-old peer, who was a Labour MP in Leicester for 27 years, was searched in December. 
Police have said he has not been arrested and the BBC understands he has not even been interviewed. 
The investigation is linked to Frank Beck, who was found guilty of abusing children in the 1970s and 1980s.
Lord Janner's London home was searched by Leicestershire Police just before Christmas.

Later. The Jewish Chronicle quotes a statement from Leicestershire Police:
Leicestershire Police has been liaising with the Crown Prosecution Service over recent months, and the CPS has been advising on taking the investigation forward. 
"We have submitted the evidence gathered so far to the CPS and other enquiries are continuing. 
"“Support for victims or anyone else affected by child abuse is available 24 hours a day from the NSPCC."
Later still. The Daily Mirror says:
Police yesterday handed evidence to the CPS after interviewing a man allegedly abused as a teenager in the 1970s by Labour peer Lord Janner, now 85.
