Detectives investigating claims of a VIP paedophile ring are examining accusations three young boys were murdered during a 10-year reign of child abuse.
Scotland Yard confirmed today officers are investigating allegations of abused at locations across London including “military premises”.
The ring is said to have links to the government, spy chiefs and senior military figures.
The accusations are based on evidence from a key witness who said he was abused from the age of seven until he was 16 between 1975 and 1984.
Much of the abuse is alleged to have taken place at an address in Dolphin Square, Pimlico — a luxury block of flats popular with MPs.
The key witness, known as Nick, is said to have given details of three murders — including extra- ordinary claims that he witnessed a boy being strangled to death by a Tory MP. Another child was said to have been deliberately run over and a third killed in front of a government minister.
Police today appealed for other possible victims to come forward.
Scotland Yard confirmed today it was examining allegations of sexual abuse that were linked to the murders of three young boys. Police did not give further details about the murders and said officers had not recovered a body.
Detectives said they had spoken to the families of two boys — Martin Allen and Vishal Mehrotra — who disappeared after being abducted in London, though there was no evidence their deaths were linked to the new inquiry.
