New report on sexual abuse at Shirley Oaks children’s home

Explosive independent report into child sexual abuse at Croydon children's home Shirley Oaks names 27 alleged paedophiles


The Shirley Oaks Survivors Association (SOSA) will publish the interim report, named Looking for A Place Called Home, at a conference on December 15.
The group pulled out of a public inquiry into allegations of the historical abuse at Shirley Oaks children’s home because they did not feel it was independent.
The crisis-hit Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse (IICSA) has suffered numerous resignations in recent weeks – and is on its fourth chairwoman.
SOSA has compiled its own independent report that features witness testimonies and extracts from official documents.
A statement published on its website read: “Having watched the IICSA unpalatable circus stumble and lurch from crisis to crisis with multiple resignations and claims of racial and sexual abuse thrown into the mix...
“It no longer matters whether we think the Inquiry is just another stitch up because it’s clearly a botch job that needs a drastic overhaul if it is ever to achieve its initial objectives.”
Raymond Stevenson, of the Shirley Oaks Survivors Association, earlier this year told BBC Newsnight the probe had failed to meet group members when asked to.
Mr Stevenson was drugged and beaten while in care at Shirley Oaks Children's Home, where a paedophile ring operated between the 1960s and 1980s.
Some 60 paedophiles will be revealed within survivors group’s the 115-page report, all connected to the Wickham Road children’s home, SOSA said.
Home Secretary Amber Rudd, in response to SOSA pulling of the inquiry, said: “The Independent Inquiry has a vital role to play in exposing the failure of public bodies and other major organisations to prevent child sexual abuse.
“We must learn the lessons of the past and we owe it to victims and survivors to get behind the Inquiry, and its chair Alexis Jay, in its endeavour.”
A music video has been created as part of the final campaign, which will be screened at the conference.
A scene for the charity single’s video was recorded at a candlelit vigil in Shirley Oaks that the survivors group held on November 27.

Child sex abuse victims angered by the Government’s crisis-ridden £100m official inquiry have published their own report, identifying 60 individuals it claims were paedophiles and detailing a cover-up by authorities.
The evidence compiled by the Shirley Oaks Survivors Association (Sosa) prompted Lambeth Council in London to offer compensation to thousands of children in its care over 30 years.
The payments expected to total tens of millions of pounds will be made to all children put at risk of ‘industrial scale’ physical and sexual abuse, regardless of whether they were actually assaulted.
Its fourth chairman Professor Alexis Jay will unveil her review of IICSA’s workings on Friday to try to fend off criticism that the process has become bloated and will take at least a decade to conclude.
Lambeth Council has accepted liability for abuse carried out at the children’s home in Croydon and announced that ex-residents would be paid - whether or not they were the victims of abuse. It is estimated that 7,000 children passed through the home during that period.
The report by Raymond Stevenson, founder of Sosa, claims to have identified 60 alleged paedophiles and accuses some police officers of corruption. It has also claimed to have exposed a cover-up by Lambeth Council, which destroyed 140 care records during the mid-1990s. Sosa said legislation states records must be kept for a further 70 years.
The report also alleges 48 children died in Lambeth’s care system between 1970 and 1989. Mr Stevenson told a press conference in central London: “I can tell you the abuse happened on an industrial scale. The physical abuse was damaging mentally - being locked in coal sheds, in cupboards, over years, what that does to a young mind is it makes you angry.”
Mr Stevenson suggested compensation could run to between £50 million and £60 million.
Lambeth Council leader Lib Peck said the report detailed “abuse on an industrial scale”.

TWO boys were murdered at a council children’s home where 700 youngsters were targeted by 60 paedophiles, it was claimed last night. 

Detectives investigating historical child sexual abuse are now examining an explosive report into a council children’s home where 700 youngsters were targeted by 60 paedophiles.
Operation Winter Key has been given a copy of the 130-page report into alleged abuse at the Shirley Oaks care home, run by the borough of Lambeth in South London.
Last night, the author and former Shirley Oaks resident Raymond Stevenson, revealed he is now looking into an allegation that two boys were murdered at the home and their bodies buried in a nearby golf course.
Retired DCI Clive Driscoll, who led an investigation into suspected abuse in Lambeth, has confirmed he was given the same information but from a different source back in 1998. 
Mr Stevenson spent the last two years speaking to former care home residents and staff to compile the report, published on Thursday, on behalf of the Shirley Oaks Survivors Association (SOSA).
It found sickening physical and sexual abuse occurred “on an industrial scale” between the 1950s and 1983, when the home closed.
Lambeth Council has apologised and agreed a £40million compensation package to victims, the largest pay out of its kind.
Mr Stevenson, SOSA spokesman, said: “What you have to remember is that report is an interim one containing probably only about 40 per cent of what we have been told.
“The next aspect to our inquiries will be what happened to children who went missing from care in Lambeth.
“One allegation we are following up concerns two young boys who were murdered in Shirley Oaks and their bodies buried in woodland on a nearby golf course.
“We know the Metropolitan Police was given this same information during an investigation into Lambeth abuse in 1998 but it came from a different source.
“Every tip that we have receive we cross-check and clarify as much as possible, at this stage I don’t know how credible this claim is but we are taking it seriously.
“We have established the identities of two possible boys and are now working to find out if they could be the victims.
“The Met have our report and know what we are doing and in due course we will pass on any further information to them if relevant.”
Mr Driscoll, who is working with SOSA, said a female witness told him of the double murder and he passed the allegation on to the child protection team at Croydon CID.
He added: “The DI was already aware of the claim but I’m unaware of exactly what action he and his team then took to follow up the lead.”
Doctors, teachers, priests, police officers, sports coaches and council workers were involved in abuse at Shirley Oaks, which although run by Lambeth was located near Croydon.
Every former resident is in line to receive payment because Lambeth council judged all children to have been at risk.
Brothers Paul, David and Mark Annon came to Shirley Oaks as young boys in 1969 following the death of their mother.
Mark, who went on to play professional for Crystal Palace, died in 2014.
Paul, 51, said: “All three of us suffered horrific abuse but we’ve only recently found that fact out as we’d all bottled it up. For years I felt as though I was the only one who had gone through it.
“I can remember at night one man would come into my room and sit on the edge of the bed.
“He’d pull his trousers down, grab my hand and make me place it on his groin.
“I never knew his name, he was a chubby, balding man but what I do remember is the deafening silence.
“Other times myself and my brothers would be marched out of bed for giggling and talking and made to stand in the draughty cold kitchen in the depths of winter.
“We had to stand there nose almost touching the wall for hours on end with our hands by our sides. 
“By the time we went back upstairs, we were shivering, chilled to the bone.”
Brother David, 49, added: “I remember a women would abuse me. She had dark red hair down to her collar.
“On one occasion, she locked me in the toilet with her and made me perform a sex act.
It wasn’t just sexual abuse, some of the people in Shirley Oaks were violent to children far smaller than themselves.
“One man used to grab me by the throat and pin me to a wall while staring at me with bulging eyes. My feet would actually be lifted off the floor.
“My brother Mark never spoke to us about his abuse but he confided in one of our close friends, who’d been at Shirley Oaks with us.
“He was picked for football trials at Crystal Palace and he’d go away for a few weeks. When he would come back he’d be much quieter and withdrawn.”
The Shirley Oaks report identified that a football scout there was friends with Eddie Heath, the former Chelsea scout who is alleged to have abused youth players at the club in the 1970s.
John Butcher, who has a conviction for possessing child abuse images, had connections to Chelsea as well as Crystal Palace, Fulham and Millwall.

Shirley Oaks Care Home: Two boys murdered at children council home JAMES FIELDING Dec 18, 2016

Operation Winter Key (ICCP): UK VIP Paedophiles: "Huge Cover-Up" Probe 26 apr 2016


A former care home worker and Catholic priest who sexually assaulted vulnerable children in his care made "malicious and false" allegations about his victims to cover up his own horrific abuse, a court heard.
Philip Temple, 67, sexually abused 12 young people over a 25-year period beginning in 1971 while he was employed at children's homes in Croydon and Wandsworth, and later as a priest in north London.
Between 1971 and 1977 Temple, of no fixed address, worked first at Woking Close children's home in Barnes, then at nearby Hartfield House, before moving to Shirley Oaks Children's Home, where he worked as a senior housefather at Rowan House.
Over those six years he "used his position of authority for his own pleasure" to abuse nine boys and one girl, Woolwich Crown Court heard today.
After carrying out his horrific assaults, which made one victim want to "cry out in pain", the "extremely skilled liar" sometimes even entered false allegations of sexual activity between children in social services records to cover up his own crimes, prosecutor Jonathon Polnay said.
Despite being suspended as a social worker in 1977 after staff at Shirley Oaks became suspicious of his behaviour with other children, Temple later went on to abuse two boys at the parish of Christ the King church in Cockfosters after becoming ordained as a Catholic priest.
In court one of his victims at the church read out a harrowing victim impact statement and said he and other victims could "never escape" what Temple did.
The paedophile pleaded guilty to 27 counts of non-recent sexual abuse, as well as two counts of perjury.
At the start of sentencing proceedings against Temple today, Mr Polnay said: "His job was to look after some of the most vulnerable children in London... indeed, he was paid to look after them.
The court heard how, at both care homes, Temple would enter the bedrooms of children while they were sleeping before waking them and subjecting them to sickening abuse.
At Shirley Oaks, which was run by Lambeth Council, the paedophile preyed on one boy who had been placed at the home because he was a previous victim of sexual abuse
Temple is the fourth former employee of Shirley Oaks care home to be convicted of child abuse, following a decades-long campaign involving residents who have fought to expose a paedophile ring that operated there.

Alex Wheatle was abused in care

In a moving account, Alex Wheatle, 51, writes of how he was sexually assaulted by a doctor at Shirley Oaks in Surrey, run by Lambeth council, South London.
The father-of-three, awarded an MBE in 2008, broke his silence after an investigation by the Daily Mirror claimed systematic abuse in the borough was covered up after the Labour MP was named as a suspect.
It is thought Alex was targeted by a network of abusers who operated in the same care homes that the rising Labour star is suspected of visiting in the early 80s.
We revealed how a Lambeth social services boss told police in 1998 that the Blair minister would make lone evening visits to a children’s home run by a convicted paedophile, Michael John Carroll.
The witness said Carroll later admitted that the politician was a friend and that he also took boys out of South Vale children’s home in West Norwood during the 80s.
This is a unit which is believed to have been infiltrated by paedophiles from outside the care system.
In his powerful account, Alex speaks of the sickening abuse suffered by youngsters at Shirley Oaks children’s home village.
Alex, who arrived at Shirley Oaks aged three, reveals how “strange nameless men” had access to the home and believes abusers were allowed access with the full knowledge of staff and council chiefs.
He writes: “I’m convinced there was a paedophile ring operating in both South Vale and Shirley Oaks and that the authorities knew about it at the time but did nothing.”
Alex, born in South London, goes on to call for justice for the victims who have been ignored for decades.
He also implores Home Secretary Theresa May that child abuse inquiries recently announced are “thorough”.

Award winning author: I was abused at council care home linked to ex-Labour minister



The serial abuser Jimmy Savile has been linked to many south London children's homes as well as Shirley Oaks. A former house parent confirmed that Savile used to attend the community centre on site with other well known people and hang around the homes. The very few nice and caring house parents of Shirley Oaks used to make sure the children in their home would not go anywhere near the community centre when Savile was visiting.

John Carroll - convicted for sex offences committed while working as a care worker in Lambeth

Why have investigations failed to establish the full truth behind sexual abuse at care homes in a south London borough?
Hundreds of children were abused in a wide range of institutions across the UK.
Establishing the truth about the number of paedophiles who looked after, or had inappropriate access to, children in the care of Lambeth Council in south London is one of her priorities.
In the 1970s, 80s and 90s, Lambeth had it all. Local politics in south London was dominated by big characters with radical ideas. Lambeth was a melting pot - and it became a byword for corruption, fraud and abuse. Abuse, that is, of children who had been placed in the care of the local authority, where they should have been safe.

Newsnight has spoken to former police officers, officials and survivors who have expressed deep concerns about what went on in Lambeth - not just during the period when children were being abused, but as successive police investigations were launched.
Between 1974 and 1994, more than 14,000 children passed through the care of Lambeth social services, and more than 7,000 were placed in its children's homes. But during the same period, a number of child abusers were employed in Lambeth's children's homes, some of whom have been prosecuted.
The most recent was Les Paul, convicted (for the third time) of abusing four boys in his care in Lambeth in the 1980s and jailed for 13 years.
Five children's homes in Lambeth - Angell Road, Monkton Street, Ivy House, South Vale, and Shirley Oaks - were places where children were exposed to sexual abuse and cruelty - Monkton Street and Ivy House were homes for children with special needs.
All of Lambeth's homes had been closed by the mid-1990s but by then, they had been infiltrated by paedophiles for at least 30 years - and survivors are still coming forward.
Documents obtained by Newsnight show investigators believed there were at least seven men who were abusing children at Angell Road alone. This was regarded as an "inner circle". The suspicion was that many more were involved.
A long-running police inquiry - Operation Middleton - which looked at all the borough's children's homes over a 20-year period, concluded there were at least 35 men and women who had abused children. In its final report, investigators said 16 suspected abusers died before the inquiry began - and another 19 could not be identified.
This figure does not include the men who have been arrested and charged. One killed himself on the eve of his trial. Add those to the total and there were up to 50 paedophiles abusing children in Lambeth's homes.
The Shirley Oaks Survivors Group believes that is a severe underestimate. The group already has more than 600 members. Many of the survivors do not trust the police and are undecided about whether they will ever feel confident enough to come forward.
Over the years there have been a number of inquiries - by the council, the police, and independent experts - into Lambeth. But they were all limited in scope. None of them attempted to tell the whole story, to pull all the strands together. 
Nobody doubts that paedophiles were operating seemingly at will in Lambeth - the question that remains is whether successive inquiries unravelled the full extent of the abuse, and to what degree this behaviour was coordinated by a large group of abusive men.
How did Lambeth find itself so compromised?
In the days when police checks were not as rigorous as they are today, councils were occasionally unlucky enough to employ predatory paedophiles. Lambeth was unlucky time and again, over 20 years, in several children's homes. Was that just negligence? Or was something else at play?

One man - Michael John Carroll - will be central to the investigation.
Carroll is better known by his second name, John. He was employed by Lambeth in 1978, became manager of the Angell Road home in 1981, and continued to run the home in Brixton until he was sacked for fiddling his expenses in late 1991.

To begin with, Carroll was considered an exemplary manager who ran a model home. But he had a reputation as a bully to other staff - and as a disciplinarian with the children in his care, who were as young as three.
Lambeth knew Carroll was a problem long before he was eventually dismissed. In 1986, it discovered something that should have excluded him from working with children. Carroll already had a conviction for child abuse - which he hadn't disclosed when he had applied for a job in Lambeth. But the conviction, and his failure to disclose it, did not lead to his dismissal.
Carroll was arrested in 1998 - and a year later he was convicted of 35 offences, including buggery of young boys. Another 40 charges were left on file. He was sentenced to 10 years in jail and served five.
Carroll wasn't the only paedophile working in Angell Road.
Another was Steven Forrest. Forrest was a social worker and a team leader from January 1983 until he died of Aids in 1991. A year after his death, a boy who had been in his care began to talk about abuse at the home.
In 1996, the boy, who was now 16 and living in Wales, told a social worker he had been raped by Forrest. The information was passed to Lambeth - but again, it failed to launch an investigation.
The furore around this led to another inquiry, led by John Barratt. He concluded in 1999 that "shocking" levels of organisational incompetence were partly responsible for Lambeth's inaction. But he said he was unable to fully comprehend why Lambeth had done nothing: "Even when it was pointed out that nothing had happened, still nothing happened."

Some of the inquiries into sex abuse in Lambeth

  • Operation Trawler (July-November 1998) - Led by Detective Chief Inspector Clive Driscoll, investigated possible sex abuse in Lambeth by John Carroll, who had run a children's home there
  • Operation Middleton (November 1998-July 2003) - Led by Detective Superintendent Richard Gargini after removal of Driscoll, covering allegations of child abuse across all of Lambeth's children's homes over 20 years; team included specially-trained social workers alongside police, known as Child Abuse in Lambeth Team (Chile)
  • Independent Inquiry into Child Sex Abuse (March 2016-ongoing) - Led by Justice Lowell Goddard, reviewing past institutional failures in England and Wales and investigating whether "public bodies and other non-state institutions have taken seriously their duty of care to protect children from sexual abuse"
  • In one confidential document, an investigator said: "There have been efforts made to frustrate [our] works, and files have had to be removed with police and it is believed that some people have interest in files not being investigated."
    Another official, former assistant director Nigel Goldie, says: "It was quite clear that staff who were paedophiles were recruiting each other and supporting each other and tending to gather in certain homes."
    There was an intimidating atmosphere in Lambeth at the time the abuse was going on - and this continued when police began their investigations.
