Police have vowed to continue their investigation into allegations of child sex abuse by the late Sir Edward Heath after several people responded to an appeal for information.

But the Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC)found no evidence of wrongdoing and concluded that the trial in question was stopped because witnesses refused to testify.
