VIP paedophile networks ‘shut down police investigations which got too close’

Detectives have turned whistleblower in an online forum to expose how undercover operations were suddenly “canned” by powerful figures.

The Mirror reports: High-level probes into VIP ­paedophile networks were shut down as police closed in on a number of powerful ­figures, former officers claim.

In an extraordinary development, detectives have turned whistleblower to expose how undercover operations were suddenly “canned”.

Almost 30 officers have been venting their anger online – heaping ­pressure on the probe by Scotland Yard and the Government into widespread claims of historic sexual abuse.

One former officer called Jim wrote: “This is about kids being raped by those in power that included politicians of all sorts.

“It goes to the very heart of our establishment.”

The allegations surfaced during a ­four-month investigation by the Exaro news website into a secret members-only chat forum used by former and serving Metropolitan Police officers.
