Mystery of missing dossier on VIP child abusers: Tory peer Leon Brittan faces questions over 1980s files on Westminster homopaedo ring
Thirty years ago, Geoffrey Dickens was one of a band of Tory backbench MPs who could be relied upon to be quotably furious on a wide range of subjects, some of which he even knew a little about.
On his death in 1995, the obituaries painted a picture of a well-liked blusterer. His support for the ‘Prevention of Television Act’ during a Commons debate on terrorism was one notable malapropism, while an honest admission of bafflement over the intricacies of the Maastricht Treaty demonstrated his intellectual limitations.
These cameos were not the extent of his ‘colourful’ behaviour. He once called a press conference to announce that he had been unfaithful to his wife with a woman he had met ‘tea-dancing’. Dickens explained: ‘I have been a naughty boy, but my philandering days are now over.’
And yet for all the ruddy-faced slapstick and red-top headlines, Dickens pursued a serious, investigative crusade throughout the later years of his political life. It concerned the protection of children from sexual abuse by adults.
One might argue that its high point came in November 1983, when Dickens handed over a ‘40-page dossier’ to the then Home Secretary Leon Brittan, which set out allegations of a paedophile circle ‘operating and networking within and around’ the Westminster elite.
Names were named, evidence presented, apparently. To those who claim to have some knowledge of the contents, it presented a timebomb under the political Establishment. Once action was taken, the Commons would have been rocked to its foundations.
And yet nothing occurred. Not even a whimper, let alone a bang.
Why? And what happened to the dossier?
Sources close to the police who have recently investigated associated allegations say that it seems to have subsequently ‘disappeared’. The Home Office confirmed that it had not been ‘retained’. A duplicate dossier held by the Dickens family was destroyed by his late widow because she thought it ‘toxic’.
This week, the Dickens dossier mystery came back to haunt the now Lord Brittan.
At the Home Affairs Select Committee on Tuesday, the Labour MP Simon Danczuk repeated his calls for a Hillsborough-style inquiry into historical paedophile allegations involving politicians.
Mr Danczuk, who helped to expose the extent of the child sex abuses committed by the late MP Cyril Smith this year in a brilliant book — serialised in the Daily Mail — told the committee: ‘I do think it would be helpful for Leon Brittan to share his knowledge of how he dealt with these allegations that were made at the time.’
Mr Danczuk said that the dossier contained information about the involvement of the notorious Paedophile Information Exchange (PIE), which was established in 1974 to promote and lobby for the legalisation of sexual activity between minors and adults.
Yesterday, Lord Brittan responded to the challenge with a statement. He said: ‘As I recall, [Mr Dickens] came to my room at the Home Office with a substantial bundle of papers. As is normal practice, my private secretary would have been present at the meeting.
‘I told Mr Dickens that I would ensure that the papers were looked at carefully by the Home Office and acted on as necessary. Following the meeting, I asked my officials to look carefully at the material contained in the papers provided and report back to me if they considered that any action needed to be taken by the Home Office.
‘In addition, I asked my officials to consider a referral to another government department, such as the Attorney General’s department, if that was appropriate. This was the normal procedure for handling material presented to the Home Secretary. I do not recall being contacted further about these matters by Home Office officials or by Mr Dickens or by anyone else.’
And yet a letter uncovered last year by a Home Office-commissioned independent review into what information the department received about organised child abuse between 1979 and 1999 suggests Lord Brittan’s memory is faulty.
On March 20, 1984, the Home Secretary wrote to Mr Dickens saying: ‘You drew my attention to a number of allegations concerning paedophilia when you called here on November 23 and in subsequent letters.
‘I am now able to tell you that, in general terms, the view of the Director of Public Prosecutions is that two of the letters you forwarded could form the basis for inquiries by the police and they are now being passed to the appropriate authorities.
‘In other cases there either seems to be inadequate evidence to pursue prosecution, for example the lady who wrote about PIE advertising but did not secure any example of the material complained of, or they have already been dealt with in some way by the courts or the police.’ Dickens — who spent much of the first eight years of his life in foster care — had been an amateur boxer who had sparred with the celebrated Henry Cooper, and he took his natural pugnacity and bulk into the political arena, where the Paedophile Information Exchange became one of his favourite punch bags.
PIE had used the gay liberation movement in an attempt to present its members as just another sexual minority. PIE was even affiliated for a number of years to the Left-leaning National Council for Civil Liberties, at a time when the latter was being run by such future Labour Party big-hitters as Patricia Hewitt, Harriet Harman and Jack Dromey.
After a campaign by this newspaper, Ms Hewitt eventually apologised for the links, but Harman and her husband Dromey remain obdurate.
PIE’s strategy of seeking maximum publicity backfired. It not only attracted public opprobrium, but the close attentions of the police and people like Mr Dickens, who scented an Establishment cover-up.
In October 1978, a PIE member calling himself ‘Henderson’ was arrested, after a quantity of extreme pornography addressed to him was found on a bus.
His Bayswater flat was searched and Obscene Publications Squad officers found there what one described as ‘one of the most revolting collections of pornographic material’ he had ever seen. And yet ‘Henderson’ was merely cautioned and told not to send such material through the post again. But his name wasn’t really Henderson. He was, in fact, Sir Peter Hayman KCMG, CVO, MBE.
Between 1970 and 1974, Hayman had been Her Majesty’s High Commissioner to Canada. He had previously held top posts in the Ministry of Defence and the UK delegation to Nato. As such, his private activities were a significant security risk to the UK at the height of the Cold War. He was an obvious target for blackmail attempts.
The matter might have been quietly buried there, if it were not for the 1981 Old Bailey trial of several other PIE members, including the organisation’s former chair, Tom O’Carroll.
Shortly before the case began, Private Eye magazine alluded to a ‘senior civil servant’ being part of the same ring.
During the trial a former PIE member told the jury that members discussed their sexual experiences with babies; O’Carroll admitted having approached 100 convicted child molesters in an effort to boost membership.
Following a retrial, he was jailed for two years for conspiracy to corrupt public morals. But while Hayman was alluded to in court, his identity was still protected. It seemed the ‘cover-up’ had succeeded. Dickens was outraged and took a radical step.
He used parliamentary privilege, which affords legal protection from libel, to name Hayman in questions to the then Attorney General, Sir Michael Havers.
He further demanded that Hayman should be prosecuted and asked: ‘How did such a potential blackmail risk come to hold highly sensitive posts at the MoD and Nato?’
Sir Michael defended the decision not to prosecute Hayman, on the grounds that he had not been on PIE’s executive committee and therefore was not part of the conspiracy.
The story was reported around the world, and when Hayman was eventually jailed for unrelated child sex offences, Dickens said it was the ‘proudest day’ of his life.
But Dickens also claimed his highly unusual use of privilege to name Hayman had won him few friends among his Westminster colleagues. One of these, of course, was Sir Cyril Smith, Liberal MP for Rochdale and serial child sex abuser.
It is now known that Smith, who died before his true nature was revealed, thanks to repeated cover-ups by friends in high places, had been a visitor to Elm Guest House in South-West London.
This was a gay-friendly hotel run by a German woman called Carole Kasir and her husband. It was alleged that the property was also used by a number of paedophiles from the worlds of politics and entertainment. It is claimed that boys who were living in a local care home were taken to the guest house to be abused.
Elm Guest House closed in 1982 following a police raid, during which an under-age boy was removed from the property. Mrs Kasir died eight years later.
An inquest returned a verdict of suicide but others claimed she was killed for what she knew. A former lover recently told this newspaper that she kept a box of incriminating photographs of the rich and famous, including Cyril Smith.
In August 1983, Geoffrey Dickens claimed in an interview with the Daily Express that he had given the names of ‘eight prominent figures’ to the Director of Public Prosecutions. He told the paper: ‘I’ve got eight names of big people, really important names, public figures.’ He said that, unless action was taken, he would ‘expose them in Parliament’.
He added: ‘One of these people is a friend of mine, but you have to be merciless protecting the young. These people must not be allowed to get away with it just because they are important in public life.’
In November, he handed his dossier to Leon Brittan. Among the allegations contained in the information that Dickens allegedly gave to Brittan was a link between Buckingham Palace and PIE.
Dickens continued to campaign but complained in 1985 of the consequences to himself: ‘The noose around my neck grew tighter after I named a former high-flying British diplomat on the Floor of the House,’ he told the Commons.
‘Honourable Members will understand that where big money is involved and as important names came into my possession, so the threats began.
‘First, I received threatening telephone calls, followed by two burglaries at my London home. Then, more seriously, my name appeared on a multi-killer’s hit list.’
Whatever the truth of these claims, Dickens lived to fight on. In 1991, he told a party conference of his solution to the paedophile problem: ‘Castrate the buggers.’
Two years ago, police finally began to look in detail at matters relating to the Dickens dossier, Elm Guest House and connections between Westminster and organised child abuse.
Officers from Operation Fernbridge, launched after Operation Fairbank, have since investigated allegations that Cyril Smith and a senior Tory politician were among those who had sex with under-age boys at Elm Guest House.
A former rent boy told detectives that he gave Smith ‘dirty massages’ at the property. But the same officers have not been able to find any conclusive proof that the Tory politician, whom the Mail is not naming for legal reasons, abused another boy there.
Yesterday, the Mail spoke to Barry Dickens, the late MP’s son. Though he described Lord Brittan’s statement as ‘too little, too late’, he welcomed it as the start of the rehabilitation of his father’s ‘good name and reputation’.
The 53-year-old told us: ‘I’m very pleased and grateful for the pressure Simon Danczuk has brought to bear. Thirty years have passed since my father raised these issues, and they are no less important.
‘After my father outed the paedophile diplomat Sir Peter Hayman in the Chamber of the Commons in 1981, an insidious campaign was started against him in the House.
‘Certain dishonourable Members began to hound him at every turn. They would ridicule him, seeking to make him a figure of fun. In that way, I suppose, they hoped to trivialise his dossier on the child abusers stalking the corridors of power.
‘Now we know my father was right. He was right about Cyril Smith and he was right about Jimmy Savile, who I believe were both named in his dossier.
‘After he’d named Hayman, my father was seen as a crusader for the rights of the abused, and many young people who’d been abused approached him. My father was a good man and they trusted him and he listened to their harrowing stories for hours. Those stories and the names that came with them were the basis for his dossier, which he gave to Leon Brittan in 1983.’
Barry Dickens said that his mother had destroyed the duplicate dossier.
‘Last year, two detectives from the Yard came here and asked to see anything at all related to my father. I got the feeling they were clutching at straws, and that they’d already trawled the Home Office files.
‘I would like to be assured that Lord Brittan has given police the names of those officials to whom he handed the Dickens dossier. I would like the public to know that every avenue is being followed.
‘I find it incredible that Leon Brittan, who was Home Secretary, could simply hand that file over to departmental officials. Why wouldn’t he want to follow that up?’
A senior Home Office source said of the missing dossier: ‘The only thing police can be sure about is that it has disappeared. Whether it was weeded out routinely, or destroyed for more sinister reasons, is also unclear.’

Tory grandee Leon Brittan insists missing dossier on VIP paedophiles was handled in "normal" way
The Home Office is facing calls to explain why a 1980s dossier about alleged paedophiles at Westminster was "not retained or destroyed".
The document was handed to then Home Secretary Leon Brittan by Tory MP Geoffrey Dickens.
Lord Brittan passed concerns in it to the relevant authorities, but the file itself was not kept.
Labour MP Simon Danczuk said it may contain evidence that would identify child sex abusers.
The Home Office said a 2013 review found the "credible" elements of the dossier which had "realistic potential" for further investigation were sent to police and prosecutors while other elements were either "not retained or destroyed".
In an earlier version of this story, we reported that the Home Office had launched a trawl for the missing dossier, but this had in fact already been carried out - even though most people, including Lord Brittan himself, appear to have been unaware of it.
Simon Danczuk had been pressing Lord Brittan to reveal what he knew about the dossier's contents - and for the Home Office to publish it in full - when officials released a statement saying they had already carried out a review that had found it had not been retained.
A Home Office spokesman said Lord Brittan had not been contacted by the team carrying out the review of old Home Office files, records and other papers to find out "what action was taken in respect of any material received".
But the team had found a letter from Lord Brittan to the late Tory MP Geoffrey Dickens, dated March 1984, which said some of the concerns he had raised about alleged abuse had been passed to the director of public prosecutions, who had passed them on to the police to investigate.
The review found that Lord Brittan had acted appropriately in dealing with allegations and it had "found no evidence of Mr Dickens expressing dissatisfaction about the action taken in respect of the information he had passed on".
Mr Danczuk told BBC News he had not been aware of the review either - a summary of which was published last year - but said it raised more questions than it answered.
"They must have published the review with little fanfare and people will ask why that would be the case," he told BBC News.
"Is the review adequate? I suspect it isn't and we are now told that the dossier that had been presented about networks of paedophiles by Geoffrey Dickens to the then Home Secretary Leon Brittan has been lost or destroyed. That raises questions."
He called on the Home Office to reveal the outcome of any police investigations that may have resulted from the information in the dossier.
He added: "Why would you destroy such an important document? What action was taken? Were any prosecutions forthcoming? We need to know this. It's raising more questions than it is answers."
Downing Street rejected calls to publish the review in full. The prime minister's official spokesman said: "The executive summaries fully reflect the work that was done."

Secret documents revealing why Liberal MP Sir Cyril Smith escaped prosecution for child abuse will now be published after a lengthy legal battle.
The Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) has been ordered to release papers relating to its decision not to bring charges against the obese paedophile politician while he was still alive.
Police submitted files about Smith’s abuse of boys in his hometown of Rochdale in 1970, 1998 and 1999, but each time prosecutors recommended that no action should be taken against him.
But the Information Rights Tribunal has ruled the CPS must make public documents explaining why its lawyers decided he should not be brought to court.
Judge Chris Hughes described the papers as ‘significant historical documents’ that shed light on the homopaedo MP’s ‘character and actions’.
The current MP for Rochdale Simon Danczuk, the author of a recent book exposing Smith’s abuse, said: ‘I think it’s good news that these documents are finally seeing the light of day.
‘I suspect there are many other documents relating to Smith and other homopaedo's that also need to see the light of day.’
Mr Danczuk’s book Smile for the Camera: The Double Life of Cyril Smith was serialised earlier this year.
Sir Cyril Smith died in September 2010, aged 82.
|Homopaedo's abuse of vulnerable boys protected by the British establishment
A health professional who reported widespread child abuse at a school for vulnerable boys has told the BBC he believes his report was "suppressed".

Phil Shepherd visited the Knowl View School in Rochdale in 1991 and is to give evidence to an independent inquiry set up by the council.
He says he was told boys as young as eight were working as prostitutes while others had been "forced" to have sex.
Rochdale Council says it cannot comment ahead of the inquiry.
In April, police began a fresh investigation into allegations of abuse and a possible cover-up at Knowl View. The separate independent inquiry is investigating whether Rochdale Council could have done more.
Mr Shepherd, who attended Knowl View to offer sex education training for staff, told the BBC what he was told by them was a "bombshell".
"I wrote a report. I imagined it blowing up anytime soon. The fact that it didn't has always amazed me," he said.
The BBC has obtained a copy of Mr Shepherd's original report from 1991.
In it, he wrote: "…parents of children at the school would be horrified were the facts to be known.
"Unless some incisive action is taken soon it is more than likely that this activity will become a public scandal".
He writes in the introduction that "most of the day was spent with the staff voicing very strong feelings about problems at the school, in particular concerns about the safety and behaviour of some of the 36 boys".
He goes on to detail claims that men from as far away as Sheffield were travelling to Rochdale to abuse five boys aged between eight and 13 who were working as prostitutes at public toilets. He wrote at the time that police were "aware of the problem" but "what action has been taken is not known".
Mr Shepherd adds that there had apparently been efforts made to reform the "disorganised" school but his own attempts to "clarify what action" had been taken by agencies involved with the pupils had "so far been fruitless".
He believes all three reports were ignored; that parents were never told what had happened to their boys.
Knowl View School opened in 1969 and closed in the mid-1990s.
It was a residential school for vulnerable boys. At various points Cyril Smith, the late MP for Rochdale who has been accused of abusing boys, was a governor.
Mr Shepherd says he will use the opportunity of giving evidence to the council inquiry to say his report was ignored, and believes a cover-up is the only explanation.
"To be honest with you, I can't see any other reason that it hasn't come out and it wasn't dealt with effectively at the time," he said.
The BBC has seen documents that seem to show his report was passed onto other departments within the council, and to the police.
A council investigation was requested a month after Mr Shepherd's report. Despite it detailing abuse and prostitution, an investigation was ruled out six weeks later.
Mr Shepherd believes not enough was done to help the children.
"I still find it hard to believe. I'm looking for an alternative to cover-up. It could've been repressed, it could've been hidden, it could have been locked away. I just don't understand."
It is 23 years since Mr Shepherd visited the school.
Asked whether he thought he should have done more at the time, he said: "I've looked back and thought about it often - certainly more recently - and thought I possibly should've done more. I'm not sure what it would've been."
Two other reports were written about Knowl View in the early 1990s. They were commissioned by Rochdale Council and, like Mr Shepherd's report, detailed the abuse of boys.
Extract form Phil Shepherd's 1991 report Three reports from the 1990s are said to have detailed abuse at the school
Other documents suggest changes were being planned but some at the school say not enough was done.
Martin Digan was a social worker at Knowl View and also believes all three reports were ignored; that parents were never told what had happened to their boys.
"It's a complete cover-up by Rochdale Council. Not one parent has seen a report; not one of the children has seen a report."
He too will give evidence to the independent council inquiry. He says he hopes the children will get the justice they have been denied.
'I feel very strongly. By no means have they had any justice yet.'
A number of boys who were at Knowl View are taking legal action.
Solicitor Alan Collins, from Slater & Gordon, is representing two of them. He says Mr Shepherd's belief his report was covered up is important.
"It is very significant if Mr Shepherd is of the opinion that his report was covered up. There he was, at the heart of an investigation and here we are in 2014 with him saying he believes that there was a cover-up."
Mr Collins added: "All the evidence so far points to that report remaining under the radar, and with it, the legitimate question can be asked: Was there a cover-up?"
Detectives investigating the allegations of abuse at Knowl View say they have identified more than 21 suspects, including Smith. Ten people have said they were abused.
Asked about documents seen by the BBC detailing abuse allegations at the school, Chief Superintendent Russ Jackson of Greater Manchester Police said they would now "be treated very differently and prompt a very different response".
One former pupil called Peter says he was abused by a staff member on the first day he arrived at the school at the age of 11.
He said the "worst nights" were when people were brought from outside the school.
"We were raped. There was a flat. We were taken there and plied with drink and raped."
The independent inquiry into the role of Rochdale Council is due to report at the end of July.

Choirmaster Alan Doggett who launched careers of Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice and worked with them on Joseph is accused of sustained campaign of child abuse at George Osborne's old school
'My sadist teachers at St Paul's prep school betrayed a generation': Sinister swimsuit inspections. Senseless beatings. Casual cruelty. Ex-pupil lifts lid on 70s regime at top schools being investigated for sex abuse
I'm one of a class of 15 eight-year-olds, shivering as I stand by the edge of a state-of- the-art swimming pool. The master walks along the line, pulling open the front of each of our standard-issue red trunks so that he can stare inside and 'inspect our name tag'.
This happens every week, to every class.
Why it's so important that each pair of trunks be so rigorously identified with its owner is something we are never told.
And it isn't just the eccentric action of one strange man but an institutional practice. The school has specifically insisted that each boy's name be sewn into the front of his trunks.
I recall my mother proudly doing as instructed while we considered the strangeness of this protocol - one of those mysterious rites of public school culture that one didn't question if one wanted the privilege of sending one's son to a place of grand tradition. Could the reason, which seemed so obscure then, really be so blindingly, pathetically obvious now?
Our teacher, one year, is a charismatic man. He is also a sadist of whom we are in perpetual terror. I return to his classroom from a music lesson one day to discover him in a frenzy of rage, provoked by some unspecified act of insolence from a boy in our class - our hero, the best at sports and the best-looking. Our teacher drags him bodily across the desk, ripping the buttons from his shirt, beating him - with a fierce backhand - so badly across the face that he draws blood.
Then he places our sobbing classmate across his lap and, in a bizarre display of sympathy, begins to stroke his head and back while offering a detached third-person narrative - 'This is where the boy weeps, this is where the master feels regret' - which, looking back on it, I can only describe as pornographic, post-coital even.
These are a few examples of what is now being called 'historical' abuse: not in Dickensian England, as the phrase might suggest, but the 1970s. Although my experiences were unpleasant, it turns out that I got off lightly. I was one of the luckier ones.
Colet Court and its parent school, St Paul's - which is often described as one of the top three independent schools in the country - together alma maters of Chancellor George Osborne, Attorney General Dominic Grieve, the billionaire Lloyd Dorfman (the founder of Travelex) et al, find themselves at the centre of a storm of media scrutiny.
The schools are now, as a result, the subject of a massive police investigation into practices of sexual abuse and concealment dating from as far back as 50 years. Many of the incidents and practices I have already described will be familiar to anyone who has attended or read about public schools over the past five decades.
What is different in the case of St Paul's is the scale. There are currently 18 masters being investigated, alive and dead, and 180 victims, witnesses, and potential witnesses have come forward. And the numbers are growing. So far, the media have focused on a handful of names: Anthony Fuggle, classics master at Colet Court, who left the school in September of last year after being arrested and released on bail for possession of indecent material discovered on a school computer.
Keith Perry, history master at St Paul's for 38 years, was convicted earlier this year for possession of indecent material involving the most serious level of child pornography. Paul Topham (deceased) was investigated but never convicted of sexual abuse.
Alan Doggett, music and boarding-house master at Colet Court until 1968, was a member of the Paedophile Information Exchange who killed himself ten years after leaving the school when he was being charged with child abuse. Patrick Marshall, geography and rowing master, is currently on bail after allegations of abuse, which he denies.
'Teacher hit my head so hard I was sick'
I clearly recall another occasion during my schooldays involving the same charismatic master who assaulted our class hero. He issues instructions over the school's public address system that we are to assemble in the hall during lunch break - an unusual occurrence which presages high drama.
We are not disappointed. Hands literally shaking, he announces that excrement has been smeared over one of the upstairs lavatories, and that he has made his class get down on their hands and knees to clean it up, describing them as 's***-house wallahs'. A number of them are sick. The combination of appalled indignation, disgust and excitement is, again, highly memorable - but perhaps hard to picture if you've never met such a man.
One Monday morning I arrive at school to hushed talk among the other 11-year-olds. A boy I know has been forced into oral sex by a boarding-house monitor several years his senior. He is not the only one. And where was the boarding-house master, known to preside over his empire with a slipper, while this was going on?
We are expected to express no weakness, vulnerability or sympathy. The cruelty which our masters show to us we then visit upon one another singly or in groups, and soon we are doing their job for them. Bullying is commonplace and takes many forms, not just physical. The lingua franca of the school is a kind of sneering insolence, in imitation of our elders and seemingly with their approval.
We learn to hate and humiliate one another. The most sympathetically advanced among us come to hate themselves, too. Friendships are more like strategic alliances. Violence and humiliation are perpetual and endemic: random fights, organised fights, boys dragged from changing rooms by their peers and thrown naked into the corridor, to howls of laughter.
A conker fight for us doesn't just mean the time-honoured schoolboy ritual but the use of conkers as missiles. After-school film shows on Friday nights are followed by riots that would seem more fitting at Belmarsh or in an H Block.
Like prison, the atmosphere is highly charged with sex, though not in any way you would associate with affection. We attack each other's genitals as a matter of sport. But even though we are sometimes caught in these acts by our teachers, no comment or intervention is made.
Inattentiveness, late homework or mischief in class or at games, however, are another matter. On the sports field, discipline is maintained with the unorthodox use of a cricket bat, preferably on naked buttocks in the changing rooms. In the classroom, the preferred media are chalk and those old-fashioned wooden blackboard rubbers, which hurtle through the air towards our unsuspecting heads.
One especially good shot with a piece of chalk from a maths teacher prompts cheers from our class, excepting only the poor object of his target practice, from whom it elicits tears of pain and humiliation. But no fear, our own turn will come soon.
Mine comes at the hands of Mr White (RIP), an Army veteran with a perpetual grin that you mistake for good nature at your peril. For daring to communicate with the boy next to me in class he takes our heads and bangs them together six times (I can still count them) - with such force that I go home and vomit, and am unable to walk all weekend.
When my mother asks why, I say I have a bug. The shame of what's been done to me is so great I find myself unable to say it. My inability to tell what has happened does even more damage than the act of physical violence.
We graduate to the senior school and life becomes moderately less savage. The violence recedes, but the cold atmosphere of unrestrained power and contempt remains. Where dog eats dog, the favoured attention of our masters provides some kind of solace and protection. My own protector is a seedy teacher who likes to tell me of his lust for young girls.
Then one day a boy climbs out of a third-floor window during class and drops 40ft to the atrium below, miraculously surviving, after which he is quietly removed from the school.
An announcement is made over the public address system that we are not to discuss what has happened, neither among ourselves nor at home, and certainly not with the Press, on pain of expulsion.
'A boy I know has been forced into oral sex by a boardinghouse monitor several years his senior. He is not the only one'
No efforts are made to engage with or understand what has happened and why. No counselling or explanation is offered. Omerta.
In response to the current crisis, the school has issued a series of letters over the past few weeks to try to reassure current pupils, parents and governors that these crimes are historical in nature and the school is complying with police procedure.
They mostly say that the school is an institution with nothing to hide or be ashamed of, modern in its standards of child welfare and transparency. Anyone tarnished by the emerging scandal, whether as an abuser or a concealer, is said to belong to 'history'.
This confident separation of past and present, though comforting perhaps to the school and current pupils and parents, needs closer scrutiny.
In a letter to parents dated May 1 of this year, Tim Meunier, headmaster of Colet Court, advises boys 'not to gossip or chatter, either face-to-face or online, about matters that have been reported in the newspapers'.
In a memo sent to all tutors on March 25 (the date of the first articles about the scandal) and forwarded privately by a concerned parent, High Master Mark Bailey advises tutors to tell their boys: 'Do not indulge in careless talk on social networks [...] It is neither appropriate nor sensible and saying anything defamatory could land you in serious trouble.'
The dangers of chatting online one can understand. But face-to-face? What does that say about current attitudes there and how much they claim to have changed? Surely an institution like this should be less confident of its position, more questioning, open, humble, curious, self-doubting and analytical?
In response to questioning, St Paul's said the boys have been told to talk about it if they wish, to speak to independent counsellors who have been provided, and to contact police or social services in the event of any concerns.
The letters remind me of another incident that happened to me at Colet Court when I was eight. My father had, unbeknown to me, written the headmaster a letter. I had been in a fight with a boy who insulted me racially and my father, an East End Jew and Blitz survivor who was bursting with pride that he had come far enough in life to send his son to this prestigious place, wrote to the then headmaster Henry Collis (now deceased), in indignation.
Collis invited me to recount my side of the story, but when I began to say the boy's name, he shut me up with a threatening wave of the finger and the admonition that 'gentlemen don't tell tales'.
I was being told, in no uncertain terms, that I and my father didn't understand the first rule of gentlemanly behaviour, which was not to talk out of school.
I decided, out of pride for myself and my father, that I would henceforth make every effort to defy this man's definition of a gentleman. I am delighted to be able to do so again here, on behalf of myself and of my late father.
The point of this is not to whinge about my treatment, but to question a mind set which, in my day, opened the gates to other kinds of immorality. The school has a history of not listening. Will it finally change?

|Apology for homopaedo abuse that was rife in boarding schools
FULL ARTICLE HERE
British gutter press have been covering up these scandals while pushing the GAY agenda failing to mention
the CHILDREN abused were almost entirely made up of boys as if that was irrelevant.
Boarding schools' chief says sorry for child abuse scandals: Teachers' leader to admit revelations 'cast a long shadow' in unprecedented apology
A head teachers’ leader will today issue an unprecedented apology for historic child abuse scandals that ‘shame’ boarding schools.
Ray McGovern will admit that revelations ‘cast a long shadow’ over today’s institutions.
He will use his keynote speech as chairman of the Boarding Schools’ Association to apologise ‘unreservedly’ on behalf of the sector for past incidents of child abuse.
He will also admit that boarding schools were a ‘closed world’ where reputation mattered more than the welfare of children.
Victorian attitudes prevailed that resulted in children being ‘seen and not heard’ and disciplined in line with the belief that ‘sparing the rod’ spoiled the child.
But Mr McGovern will say that modern schools cannot be judged on how they were in the 1950s, 60s and 70s and are now ‘unrecognisable’ from their predecessors.
His apology follows revelations that 128 leading independent schools – mainly boarding schools – have been tainted by the scandal of child abuse.
An investigation revealed in January that one or more men employed at 62 schools – including many elite boys’ public schools such as Haberdashers’ Aske’s, Wellington College and Ampleforth – have been convicted of abusing children over the past 20 years.
Eton and Marlborough are among 30 schools where a male staff member has been convicted for possession of child porn.
Another 36 schools have had their reputations tarnished by ongoing investigations, cases involving arrests but no charges, civil action for damages and staff abusing children who were not pupils.
Mr McGovern, headmaster of St George’s School, a state day and boarding school in Harpenden, Hertfordshire, will address the issue at the BSA’s annual conference in Glasgow today.
‘It shames me, and it shames the sector, that behaviour such as this happened or was allowed to happen, and for that I am unreservedly sorry,’ he will say.
‘I am sorry to those who were affected directly and to those who placed their trust in individuals who could not be trusted.’ Mr McGovern will say that schools are now much more closely regulated and that BSA members share a ‘genuinely different attitude’ towards child welfare.
‘Today’s boarding schools should not be judged by their predecessors of generations past. You wouldn’t judge a hospital now on the basis of how it was in the 1960s,’ he will announce.
In his speech, Mr McGovern will also hit out at claims that boarding school pupils are not well prepared for real life and ‘can’t boil an egg or wash their own clothes’. ‘This is not my experience. I expect it’s not yours,’ he will say.
And he will argue that universities and employers ‘increasingly look for more than top academic grades’. ‘They look for social skills and confidence, independence and resilience, character and perseverance. They look for true grit. You want all that as well outstanding exam results? No problem. That’s what we do,’ the audience will be told.
|Homopaedo worked as airport security officer frisking passengers and with fresh allegations of abusing a boy
A convicted sex offender worked as an airport security officer frisking passengers, despite facing fresh allegations of abusing a teenage boy.
FULL ARTICLE HERE
James Burns, 56, was employed as an aviation security officer at Manchester Airport after passing a criminal record and counter terrorism check.
However, the checks failed to highlight his previous convictions for historic sexual assaults because the Police National Computer at that time did not include all offences from the 70s and 80s.
Burns was given tasks including patting down passengers during security checks carried out before travellers are allowed to board an aircraft.
But at the time he was offered the job in 2013 Burns was being investigated by police over new allegations of abusing a 16-year-old boy, who can not be named for legal reasons.
He failed to tell his bosses about the allegations and it was not until he was convicted after a trial at Manchester Crown Court earlier this year that Burns came clean with bosses as his past came to light.
Burns, Westhoughton, Bolton, was suspended on full pay after he was found guilty of four counts of sexual assault on a 16-year-old boy.
However, he has still not been sacked despite the fact that this week he was given a nine month sentence suspended for two years and a 12-month supervision order.
He was also placed on the sexual offenders register for ten years and subject to a sexual offences prevention order, which means he cannot be allowed unsupervised access to any children under 16, and must not seek to befriend any male under that age.
The court was told that between August and December in 2007, Burns assaulted the victim, telling him that he was gay, despite the fact he was married with a wife and children.
Burns also bombarded the teenager with sexually explicit and suggestive text messages, telling him that no one would believe him if he told anyone about the abuse.
The victim received up to 40 lewd text messages a night, and said he was showered with gifts and cash by Burns.
At the time of the offences Burns ran his own courier business, but his firm folded in 2010 and he later applied for and got the job at the airport.
The victim came forward in 2012 after seeking medical help from his GP.
During his trial it was revealed that Burns had previous convictions for indecent assault on a teenage boy in 1980 when he impersonated a police officer, and two convictions for public order offences in 1983 and 1984 for propositioning young men for sex in Bolton.
Burns worked as an aviation security officer at the airport, and his role included physical contact with passengers, checking them as they went through the security gates.
A Manchester Airport spokesman said: 'All security officers are given a criminal records check and a counter terrorism check, before they can be based at a UK airport, and the checks highlighted no disqualifying offences.
'Had the check shown up the offences from the 1980s Burns would have been disqualified from working at the airport.'
The spokesman added that Burns remained suspended on full pay from his job.
The Police National Computer database is continually being updated with historic offences.
It is understood that the offences carried out by Burns had not been added to the database at the time he was arrested in 2012.
|Homopaedo ring of teachers abused boys at George Osborne’s old school St Paul's
The detective who headed the Jimmy Savile inquiry is to investigate claims that up to 18 paedophile teachers abused dozens of young boys over five decades at a top public school.
FULL ARTICLE HERE
Detective Inspector David Gray, who led the Metropolitan Police's Operation Yewtree, will command an investigation into claims that staff sexually abused pupils as young as nine as St Paul's School in central London and its preparatory school Colet Court.
Chancellor of the Exchequer George Osborne is among the former pupils of St Paul's, which was established in 1509 and is considered one of the leading schools in the country.
The allegations were apparently reported to the police in recent weeks and focus on accusations from a number of former pupils that eight former schoolmasters sexually abused dozens of young boys between the mid-1960s and last year.
The victims are thought to have been aged between nine and 17, and were abused in dormitories, classrooms, a swimming pool, inside a car, and at teacher's home.
The inquiry comes just months after classics teacher Anthony Fuggle, 57, resigned his post after he was arrested and bailed on suspicion of possession of indecent images.
Detectives have already compiled a list of 100 victims, suspects and potential witnesses following the claims against the former schoolmasters - some of whom are no longer alive.
The paper also revealed that a second teacher, Tim Harbord, 61, was arrested on suspicion of grooming a child. However he was not charged and denies the allegations.
The involvement of Mr Gray, who is the head of Scotland Yard's paedophile unit, will be to oversee the carrying out of a 'thorough and transparent review' of alleged sexual abuse at the two schools.
He said: 'The investigation will be conducted by a dedicated team of specially-trained officers who have experience of historic child abuse investigations and are sensitive to the needs of the victims.'
Operation Winthorpe officers have set up a telephone hotline and dedicated email address to allow former pupils to come forward with any relevant information that could help the investigation.
In February, former St Paul's master Patrick Marshall, 65, was arrested on suspicion of indecently assaulting a pupil in the 1970s. He denies any wrongdoing.
In the same month his former colleague Keith Perry, 70, was given a suspended sentence for possessing hundreds of vile images of extreme child abuse.
Mr Fuggle, who left his post in September, was reportedly arrested on suspicion of possessing indecent images of young boys, some of which may have been stored on a school computer. He is currently on bail.
The investigation into Mr Fuggle is believed to have been sparked when photographs of boys were found on a school computer during IT checks.
Alan Doggett, a choirmaster who helped launch the careers of Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice has been named was also named as one of the teachers involved in the abuse of children as young as ten.
The teacher, who committed suicide in 1978, is believed to have been a serial abuser while teaching at Colet Court - even making sex attacks part of his choir's audition process for some boys.
After he left Colet Court he was given a job at the equally prestigious City of London School but threw himself under a train when he was charged with the indecent assault of a ten-year-old boy.
The Metropolitan Police began looking into historical claims after a number of pupils who attended the school between the 1960s and 1980s came forward with new information.
Officers confirmed they made their first arrest earlier this summer before bringing a man into custody.
The school was founded in 1509 and moved from its original site near St Paul's Cathedral to its current riverside campus in Barnes, south west London in 1968.
According to its website, fees are £10,411 for a term of boarding and £6,951 per term of days. An Ofsted inspection in March 2013 described quality of learning at the school as 'exceptional'.
A spokesman for the Metropolitan Police said: 'We can confirm that due to the level of complexity involved, this investigation is now being conducted by the Metropolitan Police Service's Paedophile Unit.
'Under Operation Winthorpe, detectives continue to consider a number of allegations of non-recent sexual abuse alleged to have taken place in the Barnes area.
|Three boy victims of homopaedo teacher committed suicide after he had abused them
Three former pupils of homopaedo teacher William Vahey killed themselves after he abused them, it is claimed.

The scale of homopaedo's now getting exposed in the gutter press (Savile a wake up call to their protection network)
FBI looking for British victims of homopaedo teacher who spent 40 years working around the world including spell at £25,000-a-year London school
And one of his later victims at a top London school woke up during an assault to find he was in the pervert’s bed and wearing his underpants.
The three alleged suicides were among pupils at a school in Saudi Arabia where Vahey, who molested hundreds of pupils worldwide, previously taught before moving to Britain.
The deaths were revealed by an American female student last night after details emerged of the UK attack on a boy during a geography trip while the pervert taught at London’s £25,000-a-year Southbank International School.
Education chiefs are now trying to find out if anyone there was told about the incident three years ago but failed to act to stop Vahey preying on children.
The teacher who molested boys as young as 10 over 40 years confessed last month to plying boys in nine countries with sleeping pills before attacks.
The American married father of two was only caught after graphic images of 90 unconscious pupils he assaulted during field trips were found on a memory stick – including 50 to 60 from the London school.
Vahey, 64, killed himself in a US motel room two days after his confession to the FBI .
Now Scotland Yard is trying to formally identify his UK school victims, all boys aged from 10 to 16, assaulted in places such as Nepal and Venezuela.
But parents fear they may never know if their children were abused because they would have been unconscious when it happened.
The school in Westminster yesterday claimed the victim who woke up did not report the
incident and no investigation was carried out.
Sir Chris Woodhead, chair of the governors, said they were only made aware of the allegations this week. But a school source said: “Serious questions need to be asked about what happened and whether any warning signs were ignored.”
The pervert started at the school in 2009. He slipped through a Criminal Records Bureau check after US authorities allegedly failed to flag up he was convicted in 1969 of child sex offences.
Vahey told the FBI he used sleeping pills to abuse boys all his life. Agent Shauna Dunlap said: “It is fair to assume victims could be in the hundreds.”
Graham Lacey, top principal at Southbank International, wrote to parents: “As staff we feel upset, angry and betrayed.
“We can only imagine what you as parents must feel.” It is not known if any of the dead pupils from the Saudi Aramco Schools in Dhahran, were British.
|Clegg finally calls for probe into establishment cover up of homopaedo MP Smith
Clegg finally calls for a probe into allegations of a conspiracy in which senior politicians, police and the security services colluded to cover up the former Rochdale MP’s reign of homopaedo abuse over several decades
FULL ARTICLE HERE
Finally, Clegg says police should prove cover-up of Cyril Smith's child abuse... but he STILL won't order inquiry into what Liberals knew
Nick Clegg called for a police inquiry into the Cyril Smith scandal last night after finally admitting that there may have been an Establishment cover-up.
After two weeks of obfuscation and denial, the Liberal Democrat leader at last conceded the need for a full police inquiry into the 29-stone homopaedo’s vile sex crimes.
He called for a probe into allegations of a conspiracy in which senior politicians, police and the security services colluded to cover up the former Rochdale MP’s reign of abuse over several decades.
Accusing Smith of ‘truly grotesque acts’, Mr Clegg called on the police to investigate whether there was a wider paedophile ring involving politicians from all parties, not just his own.
But Mr Clegg still refuses to launch an investigation into what Liberal politicians knew about Smith’s abuse and whether they could have acted to bring him to justice.
What the Deputy Prime Minister is desperate to avoid is an investigation that focuses solely on his party. However, Mr Clegg would not explain how any police inquiry would operate, saying it was up to the police to decide who should be questioned and which documents should be examined.
Although his call falls short of demands for a full public inquiry into historic child sex abuse cases, it is the first time Mr Clegg has accepted that the Establishment’s reaction to the scandal had not been good enough.
Simon Danczuk, the campaigning Labour MP for Rochdale, welcomed the change of heart but said it was a shame Mr Clegg had to be led ‘kicking and screaming’ to make it.
He called on police to question former Liberal leader Lord Steel, who recommended Smith for a knighthood in 1988 despite claims that rumours of his abuse were known at the highest levels.
Police believe Smith, who died in 2010, abused dozens of boys at care homes in Rochdale and London during the 1960s and 1970s.
Despite numerous investigations, he was never charged with any offence. Three times the Director of Public Prosecutions rejected police files detailing his abuse, claiming the cases would not stand up in court.
An explosive book by Mr Danczuk, serialised in the Mail, reveals that Smith was protected by local politicians, the police and even the security services. He claims other politicians were involved in abuse, and that Smith may have been at the heart of a paedophile ring.
When the allegations first came to light, Mr Clegg rejected calls for further inquiries – saying an internal probe had shown that no one knew anything.
He was also accused of obfuscation by saying the allegations dated from before the formation of the Lib Dems, and that many of them dated from before he was born.
It has emerged that John Biffen, a Cabinet Minister under Mrs Thatcher, knew of Cyril Smith's crimes
Yesterday, however, speaking in Colchester at the launch of the Lib Dems’ European election campaign, he said: ‘The accusations and allegations surrounding Cyril Smith are very, very serious.
‘They are also part of a set of allegations that there was a wider conspiracy involving politicians from other parties involving a cover-up by the police and security services. This was looked into by the police in the past and not pursued.
‘A police inquiry is the only way we can get to the bottom of something which spans so many decades, which covered so many different organisations, and touches on so many different political parties and the police.
‘That is why I very much hope that, in addition to the inquiries the police are already conducting into children’s homes where abuse is alleged to have taken place, that they will not hesitate to reopen this so that every aspect can be looked at and people, particularly victims, can feel that justice is finally being done.’
Mr Clegg said police should also look at whether other politicians were involved in a paedophile ring. But he denied he was evading his party’s responsibility to investigate the scandal.
‘It involves reprehensible criminal acts and collusion, covering up of those criminal acts,’ he said. ‘That is not something that any political party could possibly resolve.’
Mr Danczuk welcomed Mr Clegg’s call for an investigation as a ‘step in the right direction’.
He added: ‘I think it is a shame that Nick Clegg has taken two weeks to do this. He is the Deputy Prime Minister after all; one of the most powerful people in the country. He should have taken the issue of paedophilia and cover-ups much more seriously than he has in the past, and it is unfortunate that he has been dragged kicking and screaming to this position.’
Last night a Lib Dem MP said there must have been people in Westminster in the 1970s who had heard the rumours of Smith’s abuse but kept quiet.
David Ward, MP for Bradford East, said: ‘They should have done something about it. Where there are rumours they should be investigated, however important that person is within the organisation.’
|David Steel 'I knew nothing'
Establishment cover up of vile homopaedo liberal MP Cyril Smith
In the 1980s Smith’s car was pulled over on the motorway near Northampton and traffic officers discovered child porn in the boot. Local police wanted to press charges but a phone call was made from London and the MP was released without charge.
I knew nothing: Steel sticks to his story on Cyril Smith's abuse, claiming he didn't hear any complaints after 1979 (but says he will talk to the police)
Lord Steel yesterday continued to insist he had heard nothing to suggest Cyril Smith had been involved in any offending while a Liberal MP.
The peer, who led the Liberals between 1976 and 1988, admitted he had been informed in 1979 that Smith had been investigated by police for child abuse when he was a Labour councillor.
However, he maintained that ‘no complaint or even rumour’ reached his office that Smith had been accused of paedophile activities during the 1970s when he was Liberal MP for Rochdale and Steel was his Westminster colleague.
That is despite the fact allegations of Smith’s law breaking were swirling around Parliament well into the 1980s.
Speaking at length for the first time about claims he ignored rumours about the 28-stone monster, Lord Steel said he was happy to be interviewed as part of any police probe into whether there was a cover-up of Smith’s crimes.
He recommended Smith be given a knighthood in 1988 – despite claims that senior figures in both the political and security establishment knew of allegations against him.
Last night Simon Danczuk, the Labour MP whose book revealed the full extent of Smith’s abuse, accused Lord Steel of being disingenuous.
‘Is he really telling the public that no one ever mentioned these allegations to him?’ he asked. ‘We are talking about what was an exceptionally small political party.
‘It seems incredible that Steel hadn’t heard of any of these allegations after 1979.’
On Thursday, Lib Dem leader Nick Clegg urged police to investigate whether there had been an establishment cover-up of Smith’s activities. He died in 2010 without facing justice.
In a statement yesterday to the Daily Telegraph, Lord Steel said he would co-operate with any police inquiry. ‘I agree that there should be a fresh inquiry and am happy to be interviewed, having known nothing beyond the 1979 published report of police investigations when Cyril Smith was a Labour councillor in the Sixties,’ he said.
‘No complaint, nor even rumour, of his alleged misbehaviour as an MP ever reached us, and indeed stories only came to light after his death.’
Mr Danczuk said he was disappointed that Lord Steel seemed to be highlighting Smith’s earlier Labour links: ‘Most members of the public, and certainly me, do not care which party Smith belonged to.
‘This is a case of a senior politician using his power to abuse boys, and Steel should be thinking more about the victims and less about party politics.
‘Lord Steel is being disingenuous – muddying the waters rather than clearing them. He now needs to come clean to the public on when he challenged Smith, what he said to him and what Smith said back.
‘We know for a fact that Liberal MPs, Liberal parliamentary candidates and Liberal councillors throughout the decades knew about these allegations.’
Claims about Smith’s paedophilia were printed in the May 1979 issue of the tiny Rochdale Alternative Press, and the report was brought to the attention of Lord Steel.
His spokesman responded at the time: ‘It’s not a very friendly gesture, publishing that. All he seems to have done is spanked a few bare bottoms’.
But it has been claimed that the Liberal leadership was so worried the allegations would gain wider circulation that they called in Harold Wilson’s hugely influential legal fixer, Lord Arnold Goodman, to hush them up.
Dominic Carman said his barrister father George Carman QC, who was then representing former Liberal leader Jeremy Thorpe as he prepared to stand trial for conspiracy to murder, feared that reports of Smith’s abuse in national newspapers could have seriously damaged his defence.
He added: ‘My understanding both from the time and afterwards was that Lord Goodman may well have been involved. It appears that he did a very good job of stopping the story from being repeated.’
The allegations that ‘never reached him’
Despite overwhelming evidence that rumours of Cyril Smith’s appalling behaviour were widely known at Westminster, Lord Steel maintains he knew – or heard – nothing save for the allegations in 1979 that the MP had abused young boys.
As Labour MP Simon Danczuk’s explosive book revealed in the Mail last week, Smith’s serial sexual abuse of vulnerable youngsters was repeatedly covered up by the Establishment.
And in the years following the original allegations, printed in the Rochdale Alternative Press and repeated in the satirical magazine Private Eye, Smith’s sordid activities continued.
Was Lord Steel, who nominated the predatory paedophile for a knighthood in 1988, totally ignorant of rumours of the MP’s depraved conduct? Here the Mail details the incidents he claims he knew nothing about:
One young Liberal activist was sexually assaulted in Smith’s office in the House of Commons in the 1980s as other MPs, including Labour leader Michael Foot, walked by.
Smith’s alleged abuse of boys was publicly raised during the 1987 general election by his Labour opponent David Williams. ‘Everyone in Rochdale heard rumours about him, and I believed they should be properly investigated,’ he said. ‘Perhaps it was dirty politics on my behalf , But Cyril Smith was a dirty politician, so I decided to do it.’
A former campaigner for the Social Democratic Party, then in an alliance with the Liberal Party, said senior party officials panicked during the 1983 election through fear that Smith would be exposed as a child abuser. Charles Baker, an SDP activist in Hertfordshire, said: ‘There was a kind of an alert, an alarm that one of the other parties had got hold of the fact that Cyril Smith had interfered with boys yet again.’
Smith was a visitor to the notorious Elm Guest house in south-west London, now the focus of a Scotland Yard investigation into an alleged VIP paedophile ring in the 1980s.

Two homopaedo's jailed for abusing young boys
TWO former social workers who subjected vulnerable young boys to a campaign of sexual abuse were today (Thursday, April 24) given lengthy jail sentences.
John Leslie Duncan and Kevin Brown were entrusted with the care of children with learning difficulties at two North-East residential schools when they carried out the attacks, Newcastle Crown Court was told.
The charges relate to a series of attacks spanning three decades at Shotley Park Children's Home in Shotley Bridge, near Consett, County Durham, and at Feversham School, in Walbottle, Newcastle.
Duncan, 61, of Hyde Park Street, Gateshead, was found guilty after a trial of ten counts of indecent assault on a male, three counts of indecency with a child, one count of buggery and one count of attempted buggery in relation to seven different victims.
The charges against Duncan all relate to offences carried out while he was working at the Dr Barnado’s-run home in Shotley Bridge and later at Feversham. Both have since closed.
The court was told that in 2001 Duncan had admitted the sexual abuse of two young boys, one at Shotley Park and the other at Feversham and had long-since served a term in jail for those atttacks.
Today he was locked up for 15 years.
Duncan started work at Shotley Park as a social worker in 1977, aged 23, and remained there until late 1984. He later worked at Feversham and left the school in 1995 after being promoted to its deputy head of care.
Brown, 58, who was already serving a prison sentence, pleaded guilty at an earlier hearing to five counts of indecent assault against five separate victims.
He was subsequently found guilty of a further count of indecent assault and one count of indecency with a child - against two further victims. He was today sentenced to six years on top of his current eight-year sentence.
The charges against Brown all related to offences at Feversham.
Both men were placed on the Sex Offenders Register for life and made subject to a lifelong Sexual Offences Prevention Order.
Lynsey Colling, acting head of the Crown Court Unit for CPS North East, said: “At the time of these offences, the victims were all vulnerable young children, each of whom Duncan and Brown had a professional obligation to protect.
“Instead, they abused the trust placed in them to exploit those children for their own sexual gratification.
“Despite the impact that those events had on each their victims, they have shown significant courage in assisting this prosecution.”
Detective Superintendent Steve Wade, of Northubria Police, said: "These man preyed on vulnerable young boys, abusing their positions as people in authority and trust and I'm pleased they will now spend a considerable amount of time behind bars.”
