(PRESS TV) -- UK police have opened an investigation into claims of a Westminster pedophile ring, saying they have a list of about 40 alleged child abusers, including over 10 current and former British politicians.
Whistleblower Peter McKelvie, whose claims prompted Operation Fernbridge, disclosed in his the latest report that up to 40 members of parliament and peers knew about or took part in the child abuse network.
Operation Fernbridge is a Scotland Yard investigation into allegations of a pedophile network with links to Downing Street.
Lawmakers – including former ministers and household names – from all three main political parties are included on the list.
Some of the alleged child abusers remain active in the UK parliament, while several others, including Cyril Smith and Peter Morrison, have already died.
