The Metropolitan police is examining a statement from one of the women who has alleged that Sir Clement Freud, the late broadcaster, writer and Liberal party MP, was a paedophile who preyed on her for 10 years. Sylvia Woosley says in the ITV documentary Exposure, to be broadcast on Wednesday night, that Freud groomed and abused her from the age of 10 until she was 19. Woosley, now in her 70s, appears in the documentary in obvious distress to allege that Freud took away her childhood. "The child that was denied in me has been with me all my life and has orientated my life. So, it's the child in me that is speaking, actually, and that would like to be freed," she said.
