The ex-Rollers guitarist claims that Paton tried to sexually assault him in the bedroom of the Gogar home in 1976 after locking him inside. McGlynn said that the home – known as Little Kellerstain – was used for gay orgies hosted by Paton and frequented by visiting celebrities. The bedroom where Paton slept has now been knocked down by the property’s new owner along with the sauna where he was found dead from a heart attack in 2009. The 55-year-old said that his drink was spiked by Paton who sexually attacked him when he was just 18. He said: “I’m glad that the bedroom has been demolished. I wish I was there with a hammer to do it myself. I would’ve done it for free. I would’ve blown it up. The night I joined the band in 1976, Paton spiked my drink and assaulted me in the lounge” McGlynn said that he first reported the alleged attacks in 1977 but the police deemed there to be a lack of corroboration. In 2003, the former Roller reported an attempted rape by Paton in an Australian hotel in 1977, which bandmate Les McKeown said he witnessed, but again pice deemed there to be insufficient evidence. McGlynn, who works as a developer and lives in Liberton, added: “Paton used to hold parties at the house where celebrities came up from London. There would be boys aged between 14 and 18 wandering around who would be abused. I was there, but I was too busy trying to protect myself to stop it. There was always a punch bowl in the lounge, which had been spiked with something. I didn’t know much about drugs but there were sleeping tablets and cocaine around”

BBC home affairs correspondent Tom Symonds said the allegation had first been made in 1991 by a Leicester man who told police that Greville Janner sexually abused him on a string of trips across the UK during the 1970s – including in Scotland. Scottish police have reviewed files from the original claim relating to the alleged abuse in Scotland and are now carrying out their own investigation, our correspondent said. “Because Scotland has a separate and independent prosecutor, it would be able to make its own decision about whether to charge Lord Janner,” he added. ‘Must be heard’ In a statement, the force said: “Police Scotland is conducting an investigation into an historic complaint and as such it would be inappropriate to comment. read in full
Scottish legal authorities have said they will not pursue an allegation that the late Greville Janner sexually abused a boy during a trip there in the 1970s.
The alleged victim, who was living in a Leicestershire children’s home at the time, has told police Janner sexually assaulted him during a business trip.
The allegation was reportedly passed to the police in 1991 but did not result in a charge.
Police Scotland confirmed last year it had launched a new investigation into the allegation.
Lord Janner was accused of 22 sexual offences against boys between 1963 and 1988 but died, aged 87, shortly before Christmas.
His death ended the prospect of his alleged victims’ evidence ever being tested in a criminal court in England and, now, Scotland. Read in full leicestermercury.
