New series. An independent review of police investigations into VIP sex abuse has found 43 police failings. The Henriques Review looked into the police investigations of public figures, including former Home Secretary Leon Brittan, retired army chief Edwin Bramall and Harvey Proctor, a former Conservative MP. Justice Henriques criticises the police for choosing to believe uncorroborated accusations rather than approaching the investigations with an open mind. David Aaronovitch hears new insights into how police investigations into VIP sex abuse manages to go astray.
