Tonight Crimewatch is back with a special programme devoted to


hundreds of thousands of child sexual abuse cases that continue to


shock the nation. It's not just yesterday, it's today, it never


leaves you. Exclusive access to the detectives tracking abusers down we


will see justice served at first hand. It doesn't matter how long ago


these offences were committed, they can go to the police and it will be


investigated. Will hear from the survivors at the heart of it. It


might have been 40 years to get there but we got him in the end. And


will be live the specialist confidential call centre where


survivors can call in and tell their stories. It is time to fight back.


Live for the next hour, this is Catching The Abusers, a Crimewatch


special. Good evening and welcome to a new


series of Crimewatch. Tonight we have a special episode dedicated to


tackling child sex abuse. You can't have missed recent revelations about


abuse in football. Of course the problem goes much further than


sport. And although many of the crimes we are looking at tonight


happened decades ago, we believe there are people at home watching


right now who have never spoken out about their experiences. Yes,


tonight we are coming to you live from Shropshire. We have brought our


mobile incident unit to this national centre of sporting


excellence where today's leading sportsmen and sportswomen train to


be the champions of tomorrow. It has been the home of sports the decades,


the 1966 World Cup winning England squad trained here and many of our


Olympic and Paralympic athletes have honed their skills using these


world-class facilities. Today in places like this and in


organisations across the UK the attitudes and safeguards around


protecting children are very different from when much of the


abuse to place. There's also more co-operation with the charities who


as well as organising and advising on how to keep children safe also


offer a point of contact for people who have been abused. Tonight we are


working closely with the NSPCC who put in place a specialist call


centre operation in Salford. John Kay is there. John? Yes, as well as


detectives standing by for your calls on the normal Crimewatch


number tonight there's another number you can ring if you've been


affected by these issues or if you are a survivor of child sex abuse.


If that is you, there are 35 specially trained counsellors from


the NSPCC in this room, waiting for your call this evening. They will


listen to you in complete confidence, they can offer you


support, guidance, advice, they can talk to you about how you might want


to pass on your case to the police for further investigation. The


number is on your screen now. 0808 800 5000. From 24 hours a day, seven


days a week it is open, free to call from landlines and mobiles right


across the UK. Thank you. Also tonight a round-up of other


important appeals and the latest wanted faces and some shocking CCTV,


including these masked women robbing a pensioner for his sandwiches. And


this idiotic firestarter torched and industrial place. So what is the


scale of child abuse we're talking about tonight? Operation Hydrant,


the national operation coordinating on recent child abuse investigations


across the UK has provided Crimewatch with the latest figures.


They show that since the high-profile football abuse story


broke in November a total of 1016 case referrals have been received by


the team. So far 184 potential suspects have been identified and


248 football clubs affected, meaning there are now 21 police forces


across the UK actively investigating allegations of abuse in football. Of


course we are not just talking about football. Currently schools,


children's homes, religious institutions, sports venues, medical


establishments and scud type groups or account for hundreds more


allegations. In all, this means every single police force in the UK


now has at least one live investigation into non-recent child


sex abuse. The numbers are stark but behind all of these statistics are


the survivors themselves, here are just a few of their stories. I never


wanted my mum to have that image of what happened to me. The loneliest


place in the world. If I said anything no one would believe me. It


destroyed me. I tried to hide it. I do feel the truth has set me free.


You haven't got to hide in a dark corner any more. It was never your


fault. Oh, my God, it wasn't just me, I'm not on my own! Justice had


been done, I was believed. Good evening ladies and gentlemen 's


Mac, welcome to top of the Pops! -- good evening, ladies and gentlemen,


welcome to top of the Pops. I thought, and just going to die,


that's how violent it was, that's how rough it was. I had done really


well in my exams, and my mum said she'd take me away so we ended up


going to Jersey. Jimmy Savile came into the bar. It was quite exciting,


this guy from TV. It was the next morning after breakfast that this


other girl and I were going down to the beach and he was at the door of


his van and called us over to take some photos. As soon as he grabbed


me it did not feel right at all. He was sort of thrusting his leg


between my legs and was very, very physical and took his first off and


got me to stand behind him, and he said, did we want to see inside the


van? He followed us in. And shut the door and locked the door. I never


wanted my mum to have that image of what happened to me. I could not


have gone to her and explained what had happened. I'm pretty glad that


she never knew. People have misconceptions of children getting


abused. They don't get the real violence of it. The real... Fear


that someone gets left with. Decades later, when it was in the press, a


couple of the women being interviewed, and I get a real sense


that they were not just being believed -- I got a sense. I


e-mailed ITN and said that I had been sexually assaulted by Savile


and I had photographs. And then it really snowballed. I remember


getting e-mails saying there are now 30 women and within a week it was


100. It was massive, Seung-Yul Noh. Seeing that I was not the only one.


Is not historical, it's yesterday, its two days ago. It never, ever


leaves you. I had respect for him. The utmost respect, I wish I had


not, then it wouldn't have hurt so bad. It was the statue of Jesus


watching down on me. I thought I was going to go to hell for the rest of


my life. You dare not tell because you know you will not be believed.


If you do tell, you will be outcast. And it does ruin your life. I


couldn't even see my children get their nappies changed, for gods sake


because I felt disgusted, knowing inside what happened to me, I used


to leave the room. Not nice, is it? I wanted to tell my daughter how


much I loved her, kissed her, hold her, saying I love you so much. I


couldn't. I urge anyone to come forward. Anyone. If I can save one


person from the life I've had to lead I've done my job.


You can't trust anybody. That has been the philosophy of my life. I


started being abused by a family member from the edge of 223 onwards.


I was told that if I said anything I would be taken away because nobody


would believe me and I would never ever see any of my family again,


which to a child, to tell them that is horrific. This person was


supposed to look after me. He didn't.


We had a teacher called Mr Kilgower. We were asked to come and read to


him and you would go up and with his right hand he would creep up your


leg, into my pants, the dread, you are there, and you are thinking


please don't shout my name please don't shout my name. The headmaster


told my dad I was making it all up. He just reiterated what my family


member had said. Nobody will believe you. That unbeknown to me I was not


the only victim. -- but unbeknown to me, I was not the only victim.


When I was wrongly told that he'd got a guilty verdict I cried because


it was relief at last. It might have been 40 years to get him fair but


they got him in the end. He had blackmailed me, he had


threatened me, he had got into my mind. I had aspirations to be a


professional footballer from a very young age. I joined the boys club


when I was sort of about 11 years old. The coach was very kind at


first. I had no inclination of what was about to happen, he would take


me into a room alone, he would pretend to be the physio but had no


qualifications whatsoever. And then it started off by just touching. I


was scared. He would say, I'll drive you home. Then on the way home, stop


at car parks and perform sexual acts. He would say that if I didn't


perform the acts then he would tell the scouts that I was no good, that


my training was poor, which tore my heart.


My saving grace was when I played football, I was out of his way. That


white line was my saviour but I knew he could not get to me then.


The scar it leaves his quite massive although you appear to be very


outgoing or what ever but in, I was just dying. I couldn't find a way of


speaking out and that is the reason why I am coming out and speaking


now, to tell people, don't be ashamed, to live in silence like I


did. The story is out there, people know about him. It is like a weight


has been lifted. You can come out now and tell everyone now, don't be


ashamed of it. It's not your fault, it was never your fault. You may


blame yourself that it was never your fault. I am pleased that I


spoke out. We've got a long way to go. But I do think the more things


are spoken about, the more understanding, information is


educational and without knowing, then how does anything change?


Incredible stories, just heartbreaking there and we are here


tonight coming live from Lilleshall, the national sports centre in shops.


We have moved in and we are joined by a group of guests all of whom


have strong connections to the subject matter is so let's start


with Paul Stewart, a former Tottenham and England footballer.


There is no suggestion that Lilleshall is connected to the


cases, but what made you take part in the revelations in November. To


encourage others to come forward. I knew that there was a lot of people


that suffered the same abuse as I suffered when I was a child. I know


how it impacts on your life and how it's not just the abuse as it is


happening, but how it impacts the rest of your life and your family. I


really wanted to speak out and tell my story because I wanted others to


feel that they could come forward, seek help and not suffer like I


suffered for many years. You found them that your abuser had died?


That's correct. In truth, it probably had more of an effect on my


family than it did on me, because my reasons for coming forward did not


change, it was purely and simply to help others, so that they could deal


with the abuse and know that there is help out there. And ultimately,


go and seek help if that is what they needed. Ian is a campaigner and


survivor of the use by teachers when you were at boarding school. It is


people in authority we are talking about. Absolutely. It is abuse of


power, not only sexual abuse, it is abuse of power and people in


authority who had charge of children. As a survivor of abuse,


because those who we are entrusted to abuse us, we really against


authorities. We fight against it at every stage in our lives, which


create huge issues for us growing up and turning into adults. Doctor


Hansen is a clinical psychologist who specialises in abuse and trauma


and works for the NSPCC. There was an appeal for people to come forward


but for some it might not be that simple. I think it is fantastic that


so many people are coming forward now and I'm sure they will continue


to do so and in parallel with that, we have to recognise that it will


not be the right decision for everyone to speak to the police. For


some people, the fears will be too great and the costs will be too high


and for those who do talk to the police, they will be needing to take


it step-by-step and the police will have to be earning the trust of that


survivor and show that they are taking it seriously and they are


proactively investigating. Jane Molineaux, you are a sport England's


strategic lead on young people, can we be sure that the sporting


institutions have changed and people are safer? We cannot afford to be


complacent and there are always things we can do to improve the


system. Sport take safeguard very seriously now and they work hard


with clubs on the ground and they have policies and procedures, there


are welfare officers if anyone is not sure about something, they can


talk to people who will listen to them, trusted people, we have also


helped to set up with the NSPCC the child protection and support unit,


the only unit of its kind in the world. As survivors, do you believe


that that is working? Personally, no. Part of me, my direction has


changed now. I am working with a group of survivors, former


footballers with the FA who have assured us that they will listen to


us, take on board what we are trying to do to make sure that safeguarding


is paramount. So that it never happens to children again. What do


you think, Ian? I think that all institutions that are involved in


child protection are learning hard and fast lessons. It encourages me


if people are being proactive, because it has been swept away and


covered up for decades and it is endemic in our country. All I can


say is we have to offer people opportunities to


implement change for children. This is not about people like Paul and I,


the damage is done to us, it is about future protection of future


generations to come. You mentioned the damage, Ellie, you have worked


with damage people and we should come back to the fact, what they


suffer goes with them throughout their lives, very often. The way I


would see it, if you are going through that incredibly traumatic


and difficult experience, as a child, when you do not have a


framework to understand it, you haven't got the coping skills of an


adult, you find a way to survive it, you adapt and actually, that enables


you to get through it but unfortunately, those adaptations can


leave people with problems further down the line. I would see it as


survival skills rather than damage as it were. Any advice to parents,


Jane, how do they know where they are putting their child is safe?


They need to ask some questions. If you take your child along to a


sports club or activity, there are some simple questions to ask. Do you


know anything about the person who is leading or supporting the


session? Do they have the right qualifications? Either any


procedures in place? And if the child has any concerns, who do they


need to go to who will listen to them and give them advice and take


it seriously? I would say you would never take a child and leave them in


a field and walk away and yet you take them to a sports club or


activity without knowing anything about the person leading them, so


just ask some simple questions? Thank you very much indeed for


joining us. Let's cross to John Kay who is in the specialist call centre


in Salford. It is only a few minutes as they gave out the number of this


special helpline for survivors of child sexual abuse and almost as


soon as we gave out the number, the phones started ringing and I think


every one of the 35 specially trained counsellors here are now on


calls, talking to people, some of them speaking for the very first


time about something that has happened to them. If that issue and


you want to know what happens when you ring this NSPCC number, Sandra,


talk us through it. You can talk to us, it is the first stage, it you do


not have to give us your name, it is a conversation about what happened


to you and what you would like to do next. We would like to know if other


children are at risk and is there something we can do about that now.


If the person who has abuse due has also abused other children or has


been in a position of trust and responsibility, we need to make sure


that the abuse stops. Although we have focused on


historical child sexual abuse, you're keen to hear from people who


might know what is going on now. We want to make sure that no child is


abused. The helpline is here for anyone with a concern about a child


or once some advice. Thank you very much. It is busy in here. This is


the helpline number. Thank you. Still to come... An exclusive into


how detectives brought a child abuser operating at one of Britain's


most prestigious schools to justice. One of the complainants in this


case, they have carried this around for 30 years and it has had a


massive impact. Pat was a very popular teacher although he was a


geography teacher, he also taught rowing and he spent a lot of times


with boys. He was a classic groomer with children.


We have got wanted faces a first starting with Myron Parker Lee.


Detectives in the West Midlands would like to speak to him after a


man was stabbed in October. The 19-year-old has a large scar on his


forehead and he also has a tattoo of the word mum on his right wrist and


he is known to have friends across the West Midlands and possibly in


London. This is Neil Daniel Brennan and detectives stay he is very


dangerous. He was jailed for attempted murder after stabbing a


man multiple times at a party. He also calls himself Tom Ford and was


released from prison on temporary licence but has gone on the run. He


is a master of disguise. This picture on the left shows him last


year and the CCTV image of him as well. He is known to stay in


Cheshire, Bury and the Blakley area of Manchester. Faced number three is


this man. The taxi driver was arrested over an allegation of rape


and released on police bail but has not returned for further


questioning. He is originally from Pakistan and has links to


Manchester, Slough and across Surrey. Finally for now is


31-year-old Michael Peter Martin. Police think he might have


information about a plan to blow up a cash machine and they would like


to speak to him. He has a scar above his left ear and links to Salford


and across Lancashire. If you know where any of these people are,


please get in touch. Calls are free from landlines and mobiles and we


will go through the rest of the line up a little later.


Outside a like -- nightclubber Manchester City centre and these men


have been refused entry. A scuffle breaks out with the doormen. Watch


the man with the distinctive top closely. He take something out of


his waistband. And walks over to the doormen who is facing the other way.


He then starts in the top his leg. The security man later needed five


stitches to the stab wound. Who is this man in the bright jacket?


Police need a name tonight. A woman is returning home late on a Friday


night, completely unaware she is being followed. As she parks on her


driveway, a group of men suddenly Ross towards her, terrified, she


sounds horn for help. Her husband runs out from the house and tries to


fight off the robbers but he is easily outnumbered. They struggle


with his wife and eventually grabbed her handbag before fleeing. These


lowlife thugs took around ?3000 in cash and the woman's bank cards but


they also left badly shaken. Police want to speak to this man, who they


believe was caught on camera using the stolen car at the next day. Who


are they? Doncaster in South Yorkshire. A quad bike drives past,


a car on the opposite side suddenly stops and you can just see its


headlights as it does a 3-point turn in the road. It is waiting for


another quad bike and as soon as he comes past, the car chases, trying


to force it off the road and seconds later, they smash into a parked car.


The quad bike rider suffered severe brain injuries and is still in


hospital. Detectives would like to speak to the occupants of this car,


seen at a petrol station earlier that evening as they may have vital


information. Call now if you know anything about the crash which has


left a family man with life-changing injuries. This pensioner is getting


ready to open auroral petrol station in Norfolk but these two are lying


in wait. As the 78-year-old goals to lift the shutters, they strike,


punching the pensioner and dragging him to the floor. Police believe


these thugs were women. They take his rucksack and one puts the boot


in again. They beat up the work for his bike which had no cash, just his


hat and his sandwich box in. Despicable, who are they?


Look closely in the bottom left-hand corner, this bird's eye view shows a


man smashing into an industrial unit in Buckinghamshire. As he spins into


the warehouse we get a good look at his face. Do you recognise him? He


sprays liquid from the bottle he's carrying all over the newspapers and


magazines and then lights it. But he has not finished yet. On his way out


he sets the loading area ablaze as well. The warehouse quickly goes up


in flames, totally getting the building. Thankfully on this


occasion no one was hurt but around ?30,000 worth of stock was


destroyed. This dangerous firestarter needs to be caught. Name


him. Call on the usual Crimewatch number, 0808 five 600 600 if you can


name any one we have just shown or you can text us. Texts will be


charged at your standard message rate. You can follow all of the


developments during the programme on our live update web page. More cases


the police are asking for your help with now. Starting with an urgent


appeal to find this man, convicted murderer Sean Colin Walmsley. He


escaped from three prison officers who were taking him to a hospital


appointment in Liverpool on Tuesday last week. Two men believed to have


a knife and gun threat and the officers and demanded his release.


The murderer and his accomplices then escaped in this gold coloured


Volvo. Detectives believe the car, with this registration, had been


parked near Aintree Hospital earlier that day. Did you see that car or do


you know anything about the escape? Detectives say Walmsley is dangerous


having been convicted of a savage murder. If you see him don't


approach, just call 999. Next some shocking images of eight-year-old


Tommy Ward, brutally attacked at his home in Rotherham overnight on


September 30 2015. He suffered horrific injuries and died five


months later. Whoever attacked him that might still this cash box from


his house. It was found dumped that his life savings of ?30,000 are


still missing. They have stolen his life, stolen a grandfather from my


kids and stolen my dad. We are just in a long dark tunnel and we don't


see any light at the end of it at the moment. Tonight detectives


hunting for Tommy's killer or killers want your help to identify


the occupants of this car seen it near his home on the night of the


attack. They believe it is a Saab 93. Do you know anything about who


was in the car that night or that vehicle? Please call if you can


help. Next a significant new development in the disappearance of


a two-year-old who was shopping with the mum near the military base where


the family lived in Germany on November 28 1981. It was her second


birthday. Despite extensive police searches she has never been found.


Today I could be a grandmother and I know nothing about that. I have


missed my daughter growing up, Mr teenage years. On Mother's Day and


always one card short. No detectives from the Royal Military Police need


your help to identify this man. An eyewitness saw him carrying a small


child into a greener saloon vehicle at the time of Katrice's


disappearance. Do you recognise him know anyone similar who may have


been in the area in 1981? If so, do get in touch. On Saturday, December


12 2015, 56-year-old woman was found murdered at her home in


Leicestershire. A vicious and seemingly motiveless attack on a


devoted wife, mother and grandmother. Tonight police need


your help to identify these four people seen on CCTV in home-field


Avenue on the night of the murder. They are keen to stress that they


are witnesses who might have information that will top the


inquiry, not suspects. There's a Crimestoppers reward for information


that leads to the arrest and conviction of those responsible for


the murder. So, still to come tonight, an exclusive look at how


detectives catch the child abusers who think they have got away with


it. What we are really looking for our trophies, items they have kept


that help them relive some of the offending. We went through every


real, the fans and film of him with children carrying out exactly the


acts that were described by the people who came forward. -- we found


some film. More wanted faces starting with Lee Jason Stewart.


Merseyside Police believe he may have vital information about the


assault of a woman last year, he is a registered sex offender and has


breached and auditor told police where he is living. He is 40 with a


Liverpudlian accent and has links across the Wirral area. David Paul


Garner, you may know him as David Harris or David Bray or David


Martin. He was charged with a number of theft and fraud offences and


failed to appear at Warwick Crown Court and is on the run. He is 36


and you may have seen him across Sussex, Leicestershire or


Warwickshire. Do you recognise this man? 33-year-old Omar Omar. This is


an old photograph. He also uses many names. He was due to be sentenced at


Bristol Crown Court on a drug dealing charge but did not turn up.


Originally from Somalia he now has contacts in the Netherlands,


Bristol, London and Leicester. And finally tonight we have this


20-year-old, Radu Ion. Due to appear in court on a firearms offence, he


didn't turn up, he has a Romanian accent and links to Essex, Leeds and


London. He has a tattoo of a dragon emerging from an egg on his right


arm. If you know where any of these faces are, get in touch me using the


numbers on screen you can find all the details on our website along


more people at the police need your help to locate. OK, we are just over


halfway through our special programme. Let's see how things are


going in the Salford call centre. John? Jeremy, tonight, as well as


the normal Crimewatch appeal number we have a special helpline number


for people who have been all are currently numbers of child sexual


abuse. The number is on your screen now. 0808 800 5000. It's been busy


tonight, more than 1000 calls tonight, some from people who have


never spoken out before. Sandra is running the helpline, sorry to


interrupt, what calls have you had? Allsorts, some from older people who


haven't talked about abuse before, it's their first opportunity, they


don't always want action taken they do want their stories heard and we


are getting calls from people worried about children now or people


abused in institutional settings. Thank you. That special number on


your screen now, it goes on and on to the end of the programme, it goes


on for 24 hours, seven days a week. As well as speaking to trained


counsellors, callers to the NSPCC hotlines can ask for their case to


be referred to police. Once detectives receive information about


police, sometimes decades down the line, how do they investigated and


bring the perpetrators to justice? For the first time ever the


Operation Hydrant teams have allowed our cameras in to find out how they


do it. From call to conviction. It makes you wonder, after 40 years,


why you didn't say anything before. Harrowing to think that one person


has ruined half your life. The most difficult thing with investigating


these types of crimes is actually gaining the trust of the victim. A


modern crime, we've got friends a the team that is, we've got CCTV but


with this, that has all gone. Trying to remember something from 20 or 30


years ago is a complex thing for somebody. Giving evidence is


incredibly difficult. It does not matter who you are, when you are


standing in that box you must feel incredibly alone. I was extremely


anxious about being cross-examined. It was grim. It was really, really


hard. A lot of people can't understand why


the police spend so much time and money investigating historical


allegations. For the complainants in this case they have carried this


around for 30 years and it has had a massive impact. For the past two


years, DC Kimmit Prosser has been working on the investigation into


Patrick Marshall, a former teacher at the prestigious Saint Pauls


School, London. Pat was a popular teacher, he was a geography teacher


but also taught growing so he spent a lot of time with boys inside the


school and also outside the school. A classic groomer of children. One


of several former Saint Pauls teachers accused of abusing children


between the 60s and the 90s. Two have already been found guilty.


Investigations like this are overseen in the UK by Operation


Hydrant. Its role as of again that it assesses forces nationally to


coordinate investigations. Their priority is making sure children


today are not at risk from named abuses. Take it on 20 years and are


they still have access to children, grandchildren, new families, new


clubs they are involved in? Then it is over to the detectives to


investigate. You looking for co-operation. The consistency. And


with historical cases finding that co-operation is one of the real


challenges. A good example of work or a bridge of evidence has been


very powerful in prosecution is where the victim mentioned that the


offender had written telephone numbers on the wall. Years later,


the same premises were visited, the wallpaper was removed, and those


telephone numbers were still there. It's things like that that can be


very, very powerful in proving that the offence took place. But the


drive to gather that proof has not always been the police's top


priority. Historically police forces may have looked at an account of


non-recent sexual abuse and just thought, it is too hard to


investigate this so we are not going to. I have pushed and pushed and


pushed so that people would investigate. I kind of thought that


it would have been an easy process. Between the ages of nine and 13, Ian


McFadyen suffered systematic abuse and even rape at the hands of a


number of his teachers at Caldicot School, Buckinghamshire. You can


feel your heart beating through your clothes. You can feel every breath


you are taking. Just the terror, but I didn't know what was going on. I


used heroin for the first time when I was 12, and my life from 13 until


probably 30 has been a maelstrom of drug and alcohol abuse. If a


survivor had the drugs and alcohol problem, they were emotionally numb


about what had happened or if they had a chaotic lifestyle all of these


things were seen to be kind of black marks against that victim rather


than being understood as very normal consequences of the abuse


experienced. I think it is fair to say that police have dramatically


improved their approach to the investigation of sexual abuse.


Police are becoming better informed. They are better educated about


people such as myself in the way I behave. When the police take a


survivor centred approach it is a win - win situation, best for the


survivor and also helps police gather their best evidence and


increase the chance of conviction. At the net it is the day before


Patrick Marshall's trial is due to start. I will bring the last few


bits down the stairs. A lot of the work is done behind-the-scenes. I


think in this case, we must've come up with about 800 documents and each


one of them has to be read. Many of these were sourced from the St


Paul's School archive. We have to help the police in every way we can


to ensure that justice is done. What we thought they'd might lead -- need


for personnel files but in fact it was much of the detail of the


activities that were going on in the school in the 1970s and 1980s that


enabled the police to authenticate and verify the testimony that they


were receiving. We were lucky enough to be able to draw on pupils Leavers


cards which would hold a whole host of information and one of those


cards was invaluable in our trial. The message is really clear, it is


not for you to bring the evidence to the police. Our job is to look for


things that may corroborate it and to seek the truth. DIA Paul Brown


led the investigation into Barry Warren, a scoutmaster in King's Lynn


during the 1970s and 1980s. Mr Warren had a boat on the Broads and


he would invite children from the Scout group to have a weekend away


on the boat. You would not ever think there was a dark side to him


at all. In fact, Warren was systematically grooming the children


in his care. He would embark upon games with the children. He had a


particular day game were tears would start moving into a very sexual


area. By the time police came to investigate, it was more than 20


years later but there were striking similarities between his accusers


accounts. They were all giving those accounts independently and some


years later and we started to draw some key similar factors out of that


and one of those was this orange jumper. Warren's victim said he wore


the jumper while he abused them. Barry was really clear and he


described them as fanciful allegations made up by some children


with very vivid imaginations. But then detectives searched his home.


What we were really looking for work trophies, items that they have kept


that help them relive some of the offending is. They found a


photograph of Warren wearing the orange jumper and the hair gave his


victims described. They also seized dozens of reels of silly films. We


went through every real and we found some film of Barry with some


children carrying out the exactly the same acts described by witnesses


who came forward. Sadly, the victims caught on film have never been


identified. Just some of the many survivors of abuse who have not yet


come forward. It makes you wonder, after 40 years,


why you didn't say anything before and it is harrowing to think that


one person has ruined sort of half your life. Warren was not the only


offender to leave evidence of his crimes. Diaries, notes and even


hospital blueprints have all been used to link child abusers to the


crimes they thought were consigned to the past. Let you if anything


happens. See you later. Goodbye. The jury is out in the trial of Patrick


Marshall, a former teacher at St Paul's School, London. I'm not


anxious for myself but I have got 12 people who are incredibly anxious


about the result and I think you just take an the anxiousness for


them. This trial in particular really took over my life for


probably a period of about eight months and I just think it was so


important that we did everything right. Two days later, the verdict


is in. Patrick Marshall was found guilty on all 25 charges.


I am absolutely thrilled. Today is definitely the right result, it was


the right verdict. The nature of the case just reinforced that sense of


shock and what an appalling act that was. Hearing them in quick


succession, guilty, guilty, guilty, there was an almost instantaneous


response I felt for weight being lifted. When someone has gone


through their life fearing they will not be relieved, to finally find


that you are and that people cared that it happened to you and are


outraged that it happened to you, back and have a profound impact. I


encourage you to step forward and speak out. It is my silence that


maintained my abuser's safety. We are now at a moment where we are


facing sexual abuse in a way we not done and over riding our desire to


turn away is the desire to acknowledge, to make amends to do


something different, to actually tackle this problem. Even though


these offences happened such a long time ago, just to know that if they


come to the police, it will be taken seriously and they will be listened


to. Well, Chief Constable Simon Bailey who is in charge of Operation


Hydrant is with me now along with Professor Mark Bailey, no relation,


who is the current high master of St Paul's School that was featured in


that film. What would you say to a school that finds itself in the


position that you did? First of all, support the police and help them as


much as possible to ensure that justice is done. Secondly, when it


is appropriate to reach out to survivors and to apologise and to


learn from them and thirdly, just make sure that the safeguarding that


you have in your school, at the present time is as safe as it can


possibly be. Our children safe in schools now than they were 30 years


ago? Yes, there is a national framework of safeguarding that


compels all schools to train staff, to educate children and to ensure


the safer recruitment, so the systems are so much stronger than


they were 30 years ago and the key thing is to create a culture in


which children feel able to talk, that staff are alert and aware to


signs of abuse and it reduces the risk and increases the deterrent of


paedophiles operating in schools. We have heard about school is changing


and football clubs and the police have had to change as well. There


has been a fundamental change since 2012, after Jimmy Savile, there is


no doubt that we have put in place has


improved the all in all comprehension and I am delighted and


credit must go to all those officers who are dealing with cases like the


ones you have heard this evening. The cases that will inevitably come


on as a result of the programme, they have to deal with it on a daily


basis. When you get a conviction it is not necessarily be end of the


story. Nope. It is quite often the case that further victims will have


the confidence and courage to come forward and report the abuse of the


person who has been convicted and we have to deal with that. Things are


changing. Yes. There can be no guarantees but as long as there is


greater awareness and alertness, then the chance of early


intervention are much higher. Thank you both very much. With that in


mind, please take a look at these images. This is 70-year-old Mark


Frost a retired English teacher. He used to go by the name of Andrew


Tracy. Last month he was jailed for life after admitting 45 sex offences


against young boys in England and Thailand but the National Crime


Agency are convinced that there are still more victims out there, many


of whom may never have spoken about what happened to them. They have set


up a dedicated helpline and are now encouraging any other victims to get


in touch, to get the support and help they need. The freephone number


to call is on screen now. There is more information on the website


about other organisations that can offer help and advice. Any victims


of crime can speak to the victim support. Let's have a final check on


the latest from the call centre in Salford. They say they have been


overwhelmed by the number of calls they have had in here over the last


hour. Hundreds of calls already talking about abuse that has


happened to people in care homes, in schools, throughout education, even


within families. Some of those cases go back a long way and some people


saying that they want those cases to go onto the police for further


investigation. Remember, if you're waiting to get through, this is a


24-hour helpline. You can call tomorrow if you like. The number is


on screen now. They say they are ready to take your


call when you are ready to talk. Thank you we just have time for a


quick update on the other cases. Earlier we saw truly shocking images


of this attack. You any closer to finding Tommy's killers? A number of


people have called in. If you are sitting on yourself and you have


that information, knowing what has happened to Tommy, then please bring


us. In regards to the CCTV, I need to know who owned that Saab car and


who was in that vehicle. I am urging the public to contact us. There is a


?10,000 reward leading to the arrest and conviction of the offenders for


this nasty attack on this innocent and vulnerable man. Thank you very


much. This woman was murdered in her own home, a seemingly motiveless


attack, have you had any information? I would appeal to


people who had further information to give us a call. We are keen to


identify their four males seen walking up the road. Keep those


calls coming in. That is just about all we have for you on what has been


really quite a remarkable night. We have heard about some of the worst


crimes imaginable but it has been incredible. We will see how many


people have called in for the first time. It will help bring more


offenders to justice. Details of organisations helping -- offering


help with child sexual abuse are available online. You can call free


at any time to hear recorded information as well. Remember, you


can head over right now to the Crimewatch website where we will be


streaming live that all the latest developments on tonight's appeals.


Next week we are investigating the madness on our roads, why is it that


when so many of us get behind the wheel, we lose the plot? Normally


mild mannered people are prepared to be aggressive behind the wheel. They


have got so cross that they feel they have to do something.


Unfortunately what they are doing is using two tonnes of metal to express


their frustration. That is coming next week, Monday, live at nine


o'clock on BBC One. For now, thank you so much for all of your calls,


they really do make a difference. From everyone here in Lilleshall and


the team in Salford, goodbye.


Jeremy Vine and Tina Daheley return with a special episode of Crimewatch dedicated to tackling child sex abuse. In light of revelations about the scale of non-recent abuse in football, Crimewatch has been granted unprecedented access to Operation Hydrant, the UK's national police operation tasked with bringing abusers to justice. Specialist detectives reveal how they are investigating these cases, sometimes decades after they took place. The programme also hears from the survivors about the suffering they have experienced and, for some, their sense of resolution when they see their abusers jailed. Jeremy and Tina are also joined by BBC Breakfast's Jon Kay, who broadcasts live from a call centre operating throughout the programme. Offering confidential help and support to victims of abuse, it is hoped this special episode will allow more victims to feel emboldened to come forward and tell their stories, helping to turn the tide against the abusers who have operated behind a wall of silence for so many years. The programme also asks for viewers' help with other major appeals and to identify criminals caught on CCTV. There is also the usual round-up of wanted faces. Viewers can now follow the latest developments on the cases before, during and after the live programme via the new Crimewatch live pages, available via the Crimewatch website on the day of transmission and in the weeks between each episode.
