Police officer Tony Robinson says that the UK security service MI5 told him the dossier had to be sent to London.

Liz Davies: ‘Where have these people gone?’
There are calls for a new criminal investigation into the child abuse ring in Islington, in London, 20 years ago.
Paedophile rings reportedly operated in islington and throughout Britain in the 1970s and 80s.

“An investigation would stop more abuse,” said Ms Davies, a senior lecturer in child protection at London Metropolitan University.
“We need a nationwide police investigation to look at all these things. There were abusers in all of Islington’s care homes. Now they’ve moved on.”
Child experts say that the paedophile rings operating in all of Islington’s care homes in the 1970s and 80s had links to the North Wales homes and the Haute de la Garenne children’s home in Jersey.
In 1992, the Islington scandal was exposed by Eileen Fairweather in the Evening Standard.
Ms Davies told the Tribune newspaper: "I have a lot of information. After the story broke everybody just left the Town Hall. I found one of them was in a senior position in another borough by Googling his name just recently...
"Where have these people gone? Not just known perpetrators – what about the people who colluded with them, who turned a blind eye?"
The leader of Islington Council at the time of the child abuse rings was Margaret Hodge.
Tony Blair, who lived in Islington.
She that many of the known abusers in Islington had gone on to abuse elsewhere.
Nicholas John Rabet, former deputy boss of one of Islington council’s homes, had links with the paedophile ring on Jersey.
Eileen Fairweather says "What really gets to me is that there was no real criminal investigation. At least three or four have been caught abroad, in developing countries, and that’s a damning statement about British justice. There should be a criminal inquiry into Islington."

'A child prostitute came forward to give the following account which implicates another school and shows the abuse to be much more widespread:
'In the email to Poly Prep, Bucceroni said he was 'a child prostitute' and was associated with a pedophile ring that included Sandusky, Foglietta, now-deceased Philadelphia businessman Ed Savitz and former Wharton School of Business professor Lawrence Scott Ward, who is serving a lengthy prison sentence for trafficking in child porn and smuggling photos and videos of himself having sex with a teenage Brazilian boy.
"'Due to time constraints, Sandusky became unavailable and I was introduced to Phil Foglietta by Ed Savitz & Jerry Sandusky.
"Foglietta was introduced to us as Coach Phil who coached youth football in NYC.
"Foglietta agreed to pay $200.00 for child sex and followed us back to a Philadelphia hotel, myself and another child prostitute then engaged coach Phil in child sex."' (Source)
