The detective who led the investigation into Britain's most notorious child abusers has claimed there could be another 17 unsolved murders at the hands of the brutal gang.

Former Scotland Yard detective Roger Stoodley also believes investigation files relating to the group - which abducted, abused and murdered children during the 1980s - could contain vital evidence about a VIP paedophile ring which allegedly abused boys at a London guest house.

Under Operation Orchid, Mr Stoodley helped expose the murders of three children by a gang of paedophiles, of which fairground worker Sidney Cooke was one of the ringleaders.

The victims were Jason Swift, 14, six-year-old Barry Lewis and Mark Tildesley, seven.

But detectives believed at the time that as many as 17 other abductions and murders were connected to the notorious gang.

Mr Stoodley said detectives worked on the premise that there were 20 victims involved in Cooke's gang, but that only three were established.  (more...)
