When police raided the homes of VIPs Lord Brittan, Field Marshal Lord Bramall and Harvey Proctor on the basis of ludicrous false child abuse allegations from ‘Nick’ - aka paedophile Carl Beech - one brave detective stood up against the ‘witch-hunt’. Award-winning crime writer Stephen Wright speaks to former Detective Chief Inspector Paul Settle on how he was hounded to the brink of suicide by senior officers, leading to his early retirement (the Met denies this). Settle talks about the Met’s ‘cover-up culture’ relating to the VIP abuse scandal, how the force he loved became ‘like the Gestapo’ and why he is prepared to testify against them in any new inquiry.
