Police whistleblower claims Theresa May IGNORED child sex abuse ring warnings march 29th 2015

A police whistleblower has accused the Home Secretary of ignoring warnings of an alleged child sex abuse cover-up.

Harry Bunker, 72, claimed Theresa May failed to reply when he wrote to allege two senior South ­Yorkshire Police officers protected paedophile pals during the 1970s.

The letter – seen by the Sunday Mirror – accused the pair of trying to sabotage one investigation where a dad admitted raping his daughters.

Mr Bunker told how he wrote the note in January 2014 in the wake of the Rotherham scandal, where 1,700 girls were abused by Asian gangs.

The two officers he named – one now dead and one in his 90s – were not connected to those cases.

But he said: “It became an open secret that both those senior officers were against investigating sexual crimes against children.”

Mr Bunker called for an inquiry adding: “It still makes me angry.”

He claimed Shaun Wright – then Police and Crime Commissioner before resigning over the Rotherham scandal – also ignored the letter.

An aide of Deputy PM Nick Clegg acknowledged a third copy.
