Conservatives’ LGBT group linked with paedophile ring after former chairman is jailed for sharing child porn

New Tory chairman Brandon Lewis was urged last night to investigate claims that the party’s lesbian and gay rights group was infiltrated by a paedophile ring.

The allegation was made after the former chairman of the Conservatives’ LGBT group was jailed on Friday for sharing the ‘most horrendous child abuse images imaginable’.

Primary school teacher Matthew Sephton, 42, was convicted at Manchester Crown Court of possessing and distributing indecent child images.

The court was told that Mr Sephton, also an ex-Conservative Parliamentary candidate and Trafford councillor, was a member of groups that shared child abuse images.
