The Control Risks Group member who gave evidence at the Lee Balkwell inquest

Post by Tony Bennett on 12.08.10 0:07

On holiday in Wales last week, I took as holiday reading the 1,000-page transcript of the Inquest touching on the death of Lee Balkwell. Sounds a bit weird, I know, but it's a job I really have to do in connection with the I.P.C.C. ongoing investigation into Essex Police into this matter - and one needs something to do in the not-infrequent times it rains in west Wales.

I came across this excerpt, which meant nothing to me at the time [30 January 2008] as my researches into the disappearance of Madeleine were then at an early stage and I hadn't yet come across any mention of Control Risks Group.



CORONER: It is right, is it not, that you are a senior consultant in the video laboratory of Network Foresnic, which is part of the Control Risks Group, is that right?

MARK JOHN BUXTON: Yes, I specialise in providing expertise in the enhancement, analysis and authentication of video material, primarily in criminal cases for both the police and defence teams. I hold a Bachelor of Science degree, a BTec, HNC and ONC in Electrical and Electronic Engineering.

I am a fellow of the Institute of Incorporated Engineeers. I have successfully completed the Police Air Reconnaissance Imagery Analsysis course at the Joint School of Photographic Interpretation in Bedfordshire. Before coming into this field I served in the Royal Navy for 25 years, undertaking a broad spectrum of electronic engineering work and my career in the Navy culminated as the Weapons Engineer Officer of a nuclear submarine.

Since 1999 I have been employed by Network Forensic in this field of video company is listed in the Law Society Expert Witness Directory, I am registered with the National Police Improvement Agency...and am in the process of appication for registration with the Council for the Registration of Forensic Practitioners...since I wrote this report in 2005 I was engaged by the Metropolitan Police to carry out all of the video editing in the case that was known as Operation Crevice. This was a fertiliser bomb trial that lasted just over a year at the Old Bailey...


P.S. His evidence at the Lee Balkwell case touched on allegations that Essex Police had tampered with a CCTV that police seized from the premises between South ockendon nd Upminster where Lee Balkwell died at around 1.00am on Friday 18 July 2002.

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.
