Hatton Garden heist leader ‘found sick pics of Tory child abuser’ in 1971 raid

This Mirror story shows surprising restraint in not naming the Conservative cabinet minister featured in the “sickening” photographs.

This creature is no longer living and so there can be no possibility of legal action against the paper for revealing the allegations. The photos may no longer exist – or perhaps they are hidden in the Cabinet Office’s archives, like so much other material – but we have the testimony of Reader and others.

At least the details have been passed to the Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse, which is set to examine claims against Labour peer Lord Janner, who died before facing trial for child sexual abuse, and Lib Dem MP Cyril Smith, whose paedophilia was exposed after his death.

Whether that inquiry will prove to be anything more than another cover-up and whitewash has yet to be seen.

Hatton Gardens heist boss Brian Reader was horrified when his gang broke into a bank vault and found sickening photos of a leading politician abusing children.

But the notorious crook was shocked further when the thieves left the pictures for police to find – only for the Tory Cabinet minister’s crimes to be hushed up.

Reader, known as The Guv’nor, is facing jail for planning last year’s £14million Hatton Garden raid and claims about his previous high-profile break-in can now be revealed for the first time.

The images are said to have been found stashed in a safety deposit box in 1971 when the gang tunnelled into a branch of Lloyds in Baker Street, Central London, and escaped with a £3million haul.

A close confidant of 76-year-old career criminal Reader said: “It was a shock for them when they found photographs of a famous ­politician abusing children.

“The gang were disgusted and left them lying on the floor of the vault for the police to find but nothing was ever done.”

    What a shame….Fancy thinking the establishment would have the integrity to finally put this issue where it belongs……these pics might have proved once and for all that there was a cover up and these things did happen and we have the hard evidence….If he had kept them his sentence may well have been reduced if he threatened to challenge the integrity of Government leadership. However I’m sure the police officers in charge of the case would have immediately seen the value of the pics and acted upon them straight away………..if not the Police have still a long way to go to flush the apron wearers out of their ranks and should carry out an internal investigagion straight away.

    Nothing was done about it back then just like nothing will be done about it now as all the perverts in our country are powerful people with powerful friends watching each other’s backs and is the reason why they got away with it and will continue to do so, especially under the tories because they are exactly the same!
