Detective Garda Gerard Hickey told Mary Rose Gearty SC, prosecuting, the investigation began when one of the victims made a complaint to gardai in 2011.This lead to a second victim coming forward and making very similar complaints in 2013.He had been accused of abusing eight children at the Cambridge House hostel in the town by spanking and touching them, with three separate files on his actions passed to the Crown Prosecution Service and Director of Public Prosecutions.But no charges were brought and Smith was allowed to continue his political career, becoming the MP for Rochdale in 1972 and moving into the Liberal Democrats on the formation of the new party before leaving Parliament in 1992.The men outlined the devastating effect of the abuse on their lives in the statements prepared for the sentencing hearing and both said they would never forgive O'Sullivan.

He said O'Sullivan had served with distinction and had been on one of the first tours of Lebanon.GMP launched an investigation into allegations of corruption involving Smith and others in authority in July 2014 but said no evidence had been found of a criminal cover-up of historical sexual abuse at Knowl View.Last year it emerged no one would face prosecution following a separate “extensive and thorough” police investigation into reports of physical and sexual abuse at the school from 1969 until its closure in 1995.Richard Scorer, a lawyer representing victims who were abused in Rochdale, said the council’s apology was welcome but not “comprehensive”.“The evidence of abuse at both of these institutions has been around many decades, so this should have come long ago.” Mr Scorer, a specialist abuse solicitor at Slater and Gordon UK, said the victims he represented believed Rochdale council was pushed into making the apology by the upcoming inquiry.
