Cop Who 'Found Cyril Smith in Sex Beast's Home With Teen Boys Told to Forget What He Saw'

By Neal Keeling

The now retired officer claims he was threatened with the Official Secrets Act and that just weeks ago an anonymous caller told him to keep his mouth shut

A policeman has claimed he was threatened with the Official Secrets Act and told to keep quiet after he discovered disgraced MP Cyril Smith in a house with a known sex offender and two teenage boys.
The officer, who has now retired but was a young bobby at the time, said that he was summoned to a meeting with top brass at Greater Manchester Police and told 'in no uncertain terms' to say nothing about it.

The former officer also claimed he received an anonymous call from an unnamed man who said to him: “There may be an investigation – keep your mouth shut.”

GMP has told the Manchester Evening News it is treating the claims as "concerning " and vow they "will be treated seriously".

They will be part of Operation Clifton - an on-going investigation into how historic reports of child sex abuse were allegedly covered up.

Where do they come up with these names? I wonder if it is called Clifton because a 'ton' of documents went over a 'cliff'?

The former officer told how he called at a house in Stockport in 1988 after a complaint that the occupier had been committing a lewd act in his window in front of a newspaper boy.

Beast: Child abuser Cyril Smith was in the home of a known sex beast

When he arrived he said the then Rochdale MP Smith was there, together with a police officer in civilian clothes and two teenage boys - one a runaway from a children's home.

The officer said: "I had been in the force about six months. The occupier was about 70 and seemed an old grandad type. In the house was Cyril Smith and a police sergeant in civilian clothes. The officer identified himself and showed his warrant card, saying he was there 'on other business'.

"There seemed to be a party going on, with two young lads there. Smith and the officer left. The boys, aged about 14 to 15, were drunk.

"One was missing from a children's home. I called for a van and took him back. The other lad walked off. The old man was arrested and I took him to the main police station in Stockport."

He said at the station he discovered that the oap had a record dating back to the 60s for sex offences and had spent half his life behind bars.

He was just given a caution for the latest offence - a decision the officer 'found very strange'.

The officer claims seniors
told
 him to forget
what he saw
The next day he was called to a meeting by a senior officer and his mentoring officer, Don Mackintosh, who would later be jailed for being a paedophile and abusing young boys over more than a decade.

He recalled: "I was told I would break the Official Secrets Act if I told anyone. In no uncertain terms I was told to say nothing at all.

"Mackintosh was my mentoring officer - in charge of all young bobbies. I was told don't say anything - it's all in hand. CID will deal with it. They knew Smith was there and knew who he was."

Two months later for saying nothing and 'doing a good job' he was rewarded with a police driving course.
He said: "Normally you never got on a driving course when you were on probation."

As reported in the M.E.N. an investigation by the Independent Police Complaints Commission will include allegations that Smith's abuse of children in London was covered up by Scotland Yard.

The officer said: "When I entered the house in Stockport, Smith showed no real signs of concern. Normally if a bobby knocks on your door you go into panic.

"What was said to me at the meeting is word for word what was said to the officers in London. It fits in with everything else that has been said."

'Paedo copper abused cadets'

Don Mackintosh was found
hanged last year
The officer claimed that paedophile policeman Don Mackintosh had assaulted two force cadets.

He also alleged that Mackintosh was tipped off about his impending arrest for a string of sex assaults and was able to resign and keep his police pension.

Mackintosh was jailed for nine years in 1994 after admitting a decade of abuse against young boys.

As reported in the M.E.N. he was found hanged in October last year at his home in Stalybridge.

The 71-year-old former sergeant was facing fresh child sex allegations dating back to the 1970s and a trial had been scheduled for May.

On his original arrest he opted to retire and took a £52,000 golden handshake plus £11,000 a year pension.
The officer claimed: "He was warned about three weeks before his arrest to resign in order for him to be paid his pension in full.

"I thought it was disgraceful at the time. Don Mackintosh was a very popular officer. He was looked after. They rallied round him and allowed him to resign."

The officer said he was spoken to by a detective inspector just before Mackintosh resigned.

He added: "A week later I got a visit from the Y department (professional standards branch) who wanted to question me about Mackintosh's habits and allegation he had interfered with a couple of police cadets. I said he had never molested me and the officer said 'that's the answer we want you to say'.

"I know two bobbies that were abused by him. They told me that when they were cadets that he assaulted them, yet he was never charged."

Allegations 'concerning'

Assistant Chief Constable Ian Wiggett said: "These fresh allegations will now be examined by Operation Clifton, a criminal investigation launched by GMP in July 2014 into 
how previous reports of child sexual abuse were handled or allegedly covered up.

 "These allegations are concerning and will be treated seriously. GMP has allotted considerable resources to Operation Clifton, and we are committed to investigate all the allegations as best we can.

As part of Operation Clifton we have already interviewed a large number of people
 and still have numerous enquiries to undertake. we are speaking to everyone
 no matter what status they have held or still hold to get to the truth.

It is also important to note that the inquiry has the benefit of an independent scrutiny
 group, who will provide a high degree of scrutiny throughout the investigation. 
As these new allegations relate to misconduct by police officers, even 
though officers may have since retired, the matters have been 
referred to the Independent Police Complaints Commission. 

"I urge anyone with information to call the incident room on 0161 856 0310."
