Over the weekend, it also emerged that Labour MP John Mann had handed Scotland Yard a dossier including allegations about the involvement of 22 politicians - some of them still serving - in paedophile rings.
VIP child abuse whistleblowers were 'murdered': MP says men were poised to lift lid on scandal | Daily Mail Online
A campaigning MP sensationally claimed yesterday that two whistleblowers who threatened to expose an alleged VIP paedophile ring may have been murdered.
John Mann has passed detectives information about the suspicious deaths of the men who were allegedly poised to lift the lid on child sex abuse at the heart of the Establishment.
“Many survivors and whistleblowers have commented about the failure of the Home Office to respond either to pointed questions or comments asking for replies,” he continues. “For the government, success would be nothing happening. If they can just pin things on dead people then they will be happy - as they did with Jimmy Saville and Cyrill Smith.”

We can reveal that ex-Special Branch detective Tony Robinson says he received warnings about repeating facts relating to disgraced Liberal MP Cyril Smith and over his monitoring of other politicians.
Tony, 81, now retired and in poor health, said he was “shocked and surprised” by warnings from his old bosses at Lancashire Police.
He said they told him his knowledge was still protected by the Official Secrets Act (OSA), adding that he should not speak to the media.
Tony, who retired more than 20 years ago, said: “I took this call from a man at my old HQ telling me not to speak about things from years ago.
“I could hardly believe it.
"They have not been in touch for years and then to threaten me or point out that I am still covered by the OSA was ridiculous.
Paedophile orgies in Dolhin Square flats and claims 3 boys were murdered by VIPs | Daily Mail Online
the surprising number of parallels between the cases, and the weight of evidence to support the often-outlandish claims at their centre, leaves me in little doubt that some sort of Establishment paedophile ring existed in Britain in the 1970s and 1980s. And it seems increasingly likely many of its members were protected by the security services.
The Elm Guest House story broke on 7th August 1982, when the Daily Express reported that “at least three MPs, a member of staff at Buckingham Palace, and leading lawyers, doctors and City businessmen” were questioned as part of inquires relating to “a vice ring” in “a brothel in a smart London suburb”.

One time he said he went to a 'big do' where there were many other chauffeurs downstairs in the kitchen. They were getting something to eat and drink and were told to enjoy themselves.
"He said there were some very influential people there, and although they were told to stay downstairs, he says he was curious and went to have a look. He said it was incredible. All the children were stark naked and only partially covered by small bibs or aprons, and were being auctioned off."
The security services are facing questions over the cover-up of a Westminster paedophile ring as it emerged that files relating to official requests for media blackouts in the early 1980s were destroyed.
Two newspaper executives have told the Observer that their publications were issued with D-notices – warnings not to publish intelligence that might damage national security – when they sought to report on allegations of a powerful group of men engaging in child sex abuse in 1984. One executive said he had been accosted in his office by 15 uniformed and two non-uniformed police over a dossier on Westminster paedophiles passed to him by the former Labour cabinet minister Barbara Castle.
Retired Scotland Yard detectives back up claims that paedo MPs murdered boys at sex orgies - Mirror Online
The retired officers who first investigated the allegations more than 30 years ago have provided explosive testimony to the Yard’s new probe.
The pair have made written statements to the Met Police about the VIP network which they claim was known as The Untouchables because they were too powerful to bring to justice.
It is believed the ex-cops – one of them Special Branch – told the current inquiry that they were ordered NOT to investigate the group.
Police are investigating "possible homicide" linked to what has been described as a paedophile ring involving powerful people in the 1970s and 1980s.
The group is alleged to have included senior figures in public life, the military, politics and law enforcement.
In a statement Scotland Yard said inquiries were at an early stage.

Events of the past few weeks suggest that, where tackling sex abuse is concerned, victims remain an afterthought for the government. Rather than send the message that this investigation is ready to take on the establishment, everything about this appointment conveys careful political management, a strategy of containment.
Child sex slave gangs in EVERY city in Britain: Thames Valley Police chief's warning after Oxford grooming horror - Mirror Online
Child sex slaves are being sold to paedophiles all over the country, a police chief claimed today.
Thames Valley Police Chief Constable Sara Thornton said officers identified networks of vile perverts operating between different cities and towns as part of Operation Bullfinch
But when I spoke to child-protection bosses in the wake of Rochdale’s grooming scandal a few years ago, where young girls had been continually raped by gangs of men, I may as well have been in a foreign country. Despite talking about a reality that existed a few minutes’ drive from their offices, there was no awareness of what life was like for these kids. No connection, no empathy. The head of the Rochdale Safeguarding Children Board told me they needed to take “a deeper dive into the theory” to understand the problem. The director of children’s services implied to me that young girls who were being raped were “making lifestyle choices”. She later admitted to an incredulous home affairs select committee that she’d never met any of the victims.
Rotherham child sex abuse scandal: Labour Home Office to be probed over what Tony Blair's government knew - and when - UK Politics - UK - The Independent
...it is now known that a Home Office researcher was conducting an investigation into trafficking and underage prostitution by mainly Muslim gangs in Rotherham, but it was never published, and the files were seized in 2002 by the Labour-run council when she tried to blow the whistle. The researcher faced intimidation by the police and council officials, the report by Professor Jay revealed last week.

Council leader Roger Stone resigned today following the publication of a shocking report which detailed gang rapes, grooming, trafficking and other sexual exploitation on a wide scale in the South Yorkshire town.
But council chief executive Martin Kimber said he did not have the evidence to discipline any individuals working for the council despite the report saying there had been “blatant” collective failures by its leadership at the time.
