From Did MI5 know about child abuse but fail to act?
Channel 4 News

1. "Police officers gathered evidence, including video footage, from a flat in south London. 

"Sir Cyril Smith was allegedly one of those caught on camera, along with a senior member of the intelligence agencies."

"Investigative journalist Don Hale told Channel 4 News he had given the police evidence from interviews he had carried out with Smith and Sir Leon Brittan (formerly responsible for MI5).

"He said some victims and whisteblowers who had approached him had been 'threatened' by police officers and MI5, 'who've warned them not to talk to me or any other journalist and warned also that they might lose their pensions and about the officials secrets act and this is happening even up to the last few weeks'."

3. "Speaking from the US, Kincora victim Richard Kerr, who says he was trafficked from Belfast to be abused in London, told Channel 4 News police had 'intimidated' him because they did not want him to give evidence at the 1981 trial."

4. "Former army intelligence officer, Brian Gemmell, who worked in Northern Ireland in the 1970s, told Channel 4 News he put in an official report about Kincora to a senior MI5 officer, but to his astonishment he claims he was ordered to stop digging and forget about it."
