One of Britain's most senior former soldiers was questioned yesterday by police investigating claims of an Establishment sex ring.

Former chief of the defence staff Lord Bramall, 91, was interviewed under caution but released without charge.

Officers are probing claims that powerful figures were behind the sex abuse and even murder of young boys.

The D-Day veteran attended a police station close to his £900,000 Surrey home at the request of senior Scotland Yard detectives.

He is the first person to be formally questioned as part of Operation Midland.
A witness known as Nick, whom police describe as ‘credible’, claims three victims were murdered.

Most abuse is said to have happened at the Dolphin Square apartment complex in Westminster in the 1970s and 1980s. Officers are examining whether more crimes took place at military bases.

They are working closely with the Royal Military Police in a bid to locate records of who visited the secure locations and when.

Lord Bramall, who declined to comment last night, has categorically denied any involvement in a VIP child sex ring.

He is being investigated after police were alerted to claims against him in October.
His home near Farnham was searched in March as part of a co-ordinated operation that also targeted properties belonging to former home secretary Lord Brittan, just six weeks after his death.  (more...)
