Detectives investigating an alleged VIP paedophile ring made two arrests this morning under ‘Operation Fernbridge’, Exaro can reveal.
They swooped on one address on the south coast of England this morning to make their first arrest in ‘Operation Fernbridge’. Exaro was watching one address on the south coast of England this morning when eight plain-clothes officers made a dawn arrest of a former employee of Richmond council as part of their investigation into a VIP paedophile ring centred on Elm Guest House, in Barnes, south-west London, and the nearby Grafton Close children’s home.
Exaro, which first broke news of the investigation in December, has made a series of disclosures about the case.
