Scotland Yard forced me out for warning over VIP abuse witch-hunt, says detective who exposed failings of colleagues investigating Leon Brittan
- Paul Settle took early retirement after exposing ‘incompetence’ of colleagues
- He thinks he was pushed out over Brittan case and blames Tom Watson MP
- Watson intervened in a rape case of woman who claimed to be raped by Brittan
The top detective who was the first officer to dismiss sex abuse allegations against Leon Brittan claims he has been ‘hounded out’ of Scotland Yard after speaking the truth about the case.
Paul Settle has taken early retirement from the Met after concluding he had no future in the force following his decision to expose the ‘incompetence’ of colleagues, who carried out a protracted inquiry into the discredited allegations against Lord Brittan.
