Scotland Yard has said claims by a witness that a “VIP” sex abuse ring murdered three boys are “credible and true”.
The allegations made by the witness, known by the pseudonym Nick, have triggered a murder investigation.
Police said the alleged abuse by a Westminster-based paedophile ring lasted a decade at locations across London and the Home Counties, including military premises.
Det Supt Kenny McDonald, who is leading the homicide inquiry, told a press conference on Thursday that detectives believed the witness’s claims.
