IPCC to investigate three police forces over failure to act on child abuse

Essex, North Yorkshire and North Wales forces face inquiry in wake of Project Spade sting against buyers of abuse images

Three police forces are to be investigated by the police watchdog over concerns they failed to act on intelligence about suspected sex offenders living in their area.

The Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC) has launched investigations into Essex, North Yorkshire and North Wales police forces over fears they failed for months to act on information about people who had purchased child abuse images over the internet.

Essex police is being scrutinised over why it failed to investigate teacher Martin Goldberg, 46, for 10 months after receiving allegations about him from the Child Exploitation and Online Protection (Ceop) centre. Goldberg secretly recorded thousands of images of naked boys at Thorpe Hall school in Southend before killing himself a day after police visited him on 9 September.

“There is rightly considerable public concern about how police forces deal with sexual offences involving children,” said the IPCC’s deputy chair, Sarah Green. “The IPCC takes this issue seriously and proactively contacted all forces and asked them to review their handling of intelligence to determine the scale of any issues. Our investigations will examine carefully how intelligence from Ceop was dealt with by these three forces.”

The investigations stem from intelligence handed to Ceop, now part of the National Crime Agency, by Toronto police in July 2012. The intelligence, dubbed Project Spade, was an international sting that caught people attempting to purchase child abuse images over the internet.

Information about 2,300 suspected paedophiles in the UK, including Goldberg, was not disseminated to forces around the UK until November 2013 after it became part of the National Crime Agency.

The IPCC said it was still considering whether to investigate the National Crime Agency over Ceop’s failure to act on the information for 16 months. “The IPCC has still not received all the information it requires from the NCA. Once this happens the assessment will be completed,” an IPCC spokesman said.

North Yorkshire and North Wales police forces referred themselves to the watchdog last month after the IPCC requested all forces in England and Wales to review how they handled the Project Spade material.

In the wake of all these calls to investigate into police forces and CEOP for historic misconduct and negligence , can the MET Police OG unit afford to bungle the investigation of the Mcs case or white wash the case and hope not to face future ramifications?

Well....didn't the Chief Constable of Leics Police admit to invoking special confidentiality agreements in the McCann case? Are there anymore extra special confidentiality arrangements within OG?

Retired DCI Gonçalo Amaral: "The English can always present the conclusions to which they themselves arrived in 2007. Because they know, they have the evidence of what happened - they don't need to investigate anything. All this is now a mere 'show off'."

Retired murder DCI Colin Sutton: "I would also like to make the point that Operation Grange was so restricted from the start as to be destined to fail."

Assistant Commissioner Mark Rowley made public on national TV that Operation Grange is a complete fraud.

Ex-DCI Andy Redwood had a "revelation moment" on BBC's Crimewatch on 14th October 2013 when he announced that Operation Grange had eliminated the Tanner sighting - which opened up the 'window of opportunity', in accordance with their remit, to allow the fake abduction to happen.

Despite "irrelevant behaviour" from blood and cadaver dogs in the McCann's apartment, on Kate McCann's clothes, and in the car they hired three weeks after Maddie disappeared, Ex-Chief Inspector, Ian Horrocks, said: "The thought that Kate and Gerry McCann had anything to do with the death of their daughter is frankly preposterous."

Gerry McCann called for example to be made of 'trolls'. SKY News reporter Martin Brunt doorstepped Brenda Leyland on 2 October 2014. She was then found dead in a Leicester hotel room. Brenda paid the price. She paid with her life.

Ex-Deputy Chief Constable, Jim Gamble QPM, congratulated SKY reporter, Martin Brunt, on twitter for doorstepping Brenda Leyland on behalf of Gerry McCann.
