Detectives investigating claims of a VIP paedophile sex ring have been passed lurid allegations relating to Enoch Powell.
The late Tory MP, who was one of the most prominent and divisive politicians of the 20th century, was named in a Church of England review into historic sex abuse.
The claims relate to allegations of satanic rituals, often involving the abuse of children.
Powell is one of several high-profile names passed to Scotland Yard by Bishop of Durham Paul Butler, who is leading the review.
The Bishop has also handed detectives the name of Leo Abse, the flamboyant Welsh MP who died in 2008 aged 91.
Last night the Church of England confirmed that both names had been passed on to detectives from Operation Fernbridge, a Metropolitan Police inquiry into an alleged Westminster VIP paedophile network.
