The current Savile NHS inquiry is looking at allegations of sexual abuse at Broadmoor psychiatric hospital in Berkshire.
There were allegations of a ‘child pornography ring’ at Broadmoor in 1997, but a report by Health Secretary Stephen Dorrell found “no evidence whatsoever of a paedophile ring or child pornography ring in Broadmoor”. Broadmoor’s chief executive Alan Franey resigned shortly afterwards. (Independent 17/02/97 + Independent 04/06/97)
But it seems there had also been allegations of a paedophile ring involving Broadmoor staff in 1986.
“Detectives believe they have broken a nationwide network making and distributing child porn videos. Films featuring girls as young as three and six have been seized in raids on 30 homes across the country. And a key figure in the network has been identified by CID – a middle-aged former Broadmoor nurse.”
His description was circulated to forces investigating the murder or disappearance of 15 children.
