Scotland Yard is facing new allegations of a cover up after it was reported that an undercover police investigation that had gathered compelling evidence of child abuse in the 1980s was scrapped shortly after detectives moved in to make arrests.
BBC Newsnight said it had been told that during a three-month secret inquiry, officers had gathered a substantial amount of evidence – including photographs and video taken from inside a London flat – of men abusing boys aged around 14 years old.
The police investigation is alleged to have led to the late Liberal MP Sir Cyril Smith being taken into a police station after officers arrived at a house in Streatham, South London, that was hosting sex parties involving teenage boys. But the programme alleges he was released within hours without any charges.
I wonder what skeletons exist in Canada eh Jack?
