Labour high flyer 'kissed boy in bed'

COURT: Peter Tuffley.

A FORMER Labour Party high flyer kissed and cuddled a 13-year-old boy in bed after they exchanged messages on an internet chat room, a court has heard

Peter Tuffley, 28, picked the boy up from outside a school in Greater Manchester and drove him to his flat in Liverpool, a jury at Bolton Crown Court was told. Tuffley resigned from his post as Labour's regional officer for the north west, when the allegations surfaced in March last year.

He denies charges of grooming over the internet, child abduction and sexual activity with a child.



The court was told that openly-gay Tuffley and the teenager, who cannot be named, were registered members of a website chat room called Face Party.

The youngster admitted in police interviews that he said he was 18 when he set up a profile on the internet site, but the prosecution claim he later told Tuffley that he was only 15.

'Cuddled'

The boy said in the interviews played to the jury: "I fancied him and I liked him. We had lots in common. We just kissed and cuddled."
Tuffley, now based in East Sussex, drove the boy home the following day, the court was told.

Geoff Whelan, prosecuting, said there was "ample" evidence that Tuffley knew the youngster was under 16. Mr Whelan said: "Anyone using it has to assert that they are 16 years or over. The prosecution say that there are clues on his profile as to his age."

The jury heard the youngster being asked what his favourite bar or nightclub was. His online reply was: "I wish, because I have never been to one."

Mr Whelan said the messages on the part of the boy displayed "childish infatuation" and Tuffley's messages showed he was "enthusiastic".

He said: "The defendant called him `babe' and said he had been thinking about him loads. The contact was clearly focused on what was going to happen when they met in person. They had clear sexual content."

Police were alerted by the boy's parents after he left a note saying he was with "Peter", the court was told. Proceeding
