TOM WATSON AND EXARO

Response to the Exaro/Sunday People allegations

Exaro and the Sunday People have published a story regarding allegations of child murder. Here’s my response:
The allegations of cruelty, torture and murder are truly shocking and go far beyond the case I raised with the Prime Minister two years ago. The public will be deeply concerned which is why it is vital the police quickly establish the facts. It’s such a disturbing allegation that I have no doubt the resources will be found to conduct a thorough investigation.
If true, this is a vital piece of the jigsaw in the pursuit of organised child abuse.
We are at the point where the government should consider a national police inquiry made up of specialists from around the country. It is unfair to ask the police in London alone to investigate alleged crimes that took place in many regions of the UK. I am writing to the PM to make this request.
