Former British PM, Ted Heath, Sexually Assaulted Boys As Young As 10

IF HE WAS still alive, former UK Prime Minister Edward “Ted” Heath would have been questioned under caution over claims that he sexually assaulted five boys, police said.

Following a two-year investigation, officers said that Heath is alleged to have raped an 11-year-old boy during a paid sexual encounter. The alleged offences are said to have occurred when he was a serving MP.

He is also alleged to have indecently assaulted a 10-year-old boy during a chance encounter in a public place in 1962 and indecently assaulted a 15-year-old boy during three paid sexual encounters in 1964, the year he was made Tory leader.
