Sussex Police find themselves guilty of manslaughter following reports that SEVEN people died following contact with their police force in the past year.
The statistics from the Independent Office for Police Conduct (IOPC), show that across England and Wales, there were 206 deaths following police contact in 2019-20.
As reported in The Evening Argus, Sussex Police recorded one death in or following custody, three deaths believed to be suicide following release and three other deaths following contact with the force.
A force spokeswoman said: “It is right the actions of those involved are scrutinised to establish if there were any shortcomings and to identify if there are better ways of doing things to protect the public who come into contact with the police.”
The death in or following custody related to a man seen walking erratically in the middle of a busy dual carriageway. He was handcuffed but these were removed and first aid given when he suffered a medical episode and died in hospital. This was subject to an independent investigation by the IOPC and no misconduct was found.
Manslaughter is defined as the unjustifiable, inexcusable, and intentional killing of a human being without deliberation, premeditation, and malice. The unlawful killing of a human being without any deliberation, which may be involuntary, in the commission of a lawful act without due caution and circumspection.
Manslaughter is a distinct crime and is not considered a lesser degree of murder. The essential distinction between the two offences is that malice aforethought must be present for murder, whereas it must be absent for manslaughter. Manslaughter is not as serious a crime as murder. On the other hand, it is not a justifiable or excusable killing for which little or no punishment is imposed.
No criminal action will be taken against Sussex Police.

I recently watched a man on Youtube proudly declare the only good paedophile, is a dead paedophile!
Or is a good paedophile personified in the guise of Michael Dawson, who claims, (via his lawyer), he only spent 20 years as a Scout leader, as a “genuine desire to help the development of young boys,” rather than anything sexual.
Lawyer Kevin Light defending Dawson said, “My client refutes the suggestion of any sexual motivation, but rather a genuine desire to help the development of young boys.”
He added there have been no allegations made during his 20-year involvement with the Scouts.
Showing ‘no understanding’ of why his behaviour was wrong, Judge Shani Barnes spared Dawson an immediate prison sentence and instead told him to complete 40 hours of unpaid work and sessions with a sex offenders’ programme.
In a Sussex police sting, (along the lines of the ever-popular paedophile hunter rings, now springing up across the UK), Dawson was lead to believe he was meeting a 13-year-old boy for some kind of sexual contact.
When told the teenager’s age, Dawson replied, “I don’t mind if you don’t.”
Written by Aidan Barlow, the Crime Reporter for The Argus in Brighton:
Sussex Police face fresh allegations of corruption today, after a telephone conversation between a suspect in a firearms and harassment case, is heard being solicited by a Sussex Police officer, into making a malicious and frivolous allegation of handling stolen goods, against thorn in the side of Sussex Police since 2012, Matt Taylor..
Confused transgender champion Paris Barrington from Peterborough, released a telephone conversation between him/herself and Sussex Police DC Andy Mountford-Laker and Northamptonshire PC Michael Clarke; during which damning evidence is presented, which shows Sussex Police going to all and any lengths, to bring a malicious prosecution against ex Royal Military Policeman Matt Taylor.
In one extract, we hear Paris talking to PC Michael Clarke;
“No, you called me and you told me you had my phone, listen this is what start all this off, you phoned me, not you personally, it was err, err, err DC Manford, he phoned me and he wanted to prosecute Matt Taylor, so I went along with it if I don’t get any agro, but you seem to be annoying me for some reason.”
From the extract above its clear that it was Sussex Police DC Andy Mountford-Laker, who contacted Paris Barrington, because he wanted to “prosecute Matt Taylor”, to which Paris Barrington agreed to go “along with”, if he didn’t get any “agro.”
Labelled a “Conspiracy Theorists,” by the Brighton and Hove News, and accused of regularly posting wild accusations about Sussex Police and other public figures on his blog and YouTube channel; Matt Taylor, 48 from Brighton, accuses Sussex Police of waging a course of conduct against him (and others including John Paterson and John Hoath), which amounts to serious harassment, stalking and intimidation.
Taylor contends that three events since September 2019, prove beyond doubt, that he’s been a victim of Sussex Police corruption, and even goes so far to make his wildest allegation to date, that a Reptilian Alien Satanic Sex Sect, is operating within the ranks of Sussex Police.
Arrested for Stalking a [Particular Individual]!
Taylor accuses Sussex Police of a premeditated and strategically planned arrest, to inflict maximum disruption, hurt, alarm and fear, upon his person, with the decision to arrest him on 22 March 2020, (on the eve of the Coronavirus lock-down) for a frivolous and malicious complaint of harassment, with the fear of violence, for posting a 30 second video clip on Youtube, 6 months previously..
Proof Sussex Police are out to Get Me, no matter what and how its done!
Proof is telephone conversations between Paris Barrington and Sussex Police DC Andy Mountford-Laker and Northamptonshire PC Michael Clarke; during which its provable that Sussex Police actively solicit Paris Barrington into making a frivolous and malicious criminal complaint against me, with the intention of arresting me, getting me in for an interview and then to be charged with handling stolen goods.
Sussex Police are Banged to Rights.
Probably the most damning evidence of corruption within Sussex Police, this damaging conversation between Paris Barrington and DC Andy Mountford-Laker, demonstrates the solicitation of Paris by Sussex Police to make a malicious allegation against Matt Taylor.
DC Mountford-Laker: My question to you Paris is, would you like to give a statement in relation to the theft of your phones and that fact that, arh, obviously, umm, Matthew Taylor had them because obviously I’d be looking to prosecute him for handling stolen goods, cos per-say, CM took them, stole them and then obviously Matthew Taylor ws aware, I appreciate you said he’ll give them back to you when he gets his phones back from the police, well it’s still handling stolen property. OK Paris, it’s up to you. From my point of view.
Paris Barrington: I know that Matt Taylor is a little bit of a naughty boy, but I don’t want to go down this avenue if it’s going to waste my time. I want to really annoy Matt Taylor because he told, he put out there live, that I’ve raped people and I’m not very impressed with that at all. All I’ve done was slagged him off because he had my phone.
DC Mountford-Laker: OK, I’m I’m, sorry I’m trying not to. My job as a police officer is to investigate crime.
Paris Barrington: Right.
DC Mountford-Laker: I am aware that a crime has taken place.
Paris Barrington: Yep.
DC Mountford-Laker: Because your phone has been stolen and then he’s obviously admitted to you online that he’s got your phones.
Paris Barrington: Yeah.
DC Mountford-Laker: Obviously you said they were stolen because I’ve seen your posts online, I’ve got a copy of it, I’ve uploaded it.
Paris Barrington: Right OK.
DC Mountford-Laker: Um, so, it wouldn’t be wasting your time because they’re stolen property.
Paris Barrington: Right.
DC Mountford-Laker: So I’ll have him in, interview him, arh about it, and he’ll be charged with a theft offence.
Paris Barrington: Yeah that’s a good idea.
Is Matt Taylor a paedophile?
In a shocking display of unprofessionalism, the above extract of a telephone conversation between Paris Barrington and DC Andy Mountford-Laker, (which was alleged to have taken place between 25-27 March 2020), reveals Paris asking a malicious question about Matt Taylor, which a serving police detective should have known better to answer, let alone describe it as “an interesting question.”
Paris Barrington: Yeah that’s a good idea. Can I ask you a question? I don’t know whether you, you, you are allowed to answer this or not but you are allowed to cough instead of saying yeah. Is he a paedophile?
Paris Barrington: OK.
DC Mountford-Laker: It’s an interesting question and all I can say is that I am investigating unrelating matters to that, but it requires I examine his computers and phones and I don’t know what I’m going to find on them.
Paris Barrington: Oh right OK.
DC Mountford-Laker: I’m not investigating him for a sexual nature, but I don’t know, but also if he gets charged with something, it’ll be in the public arena.
Paris Barrington: Yeah OK I just wanted to ask that, I’m going to take that as ‘no’, at the moment but I can read between the lines.
Keep in mind that Matt Taylor had previously reported Paris Barrington to Sussex Police on two previous occasions, accusing him of harassment, doxing and doxing of his children’s address.
Email Correspondence with Sussex Police Detective Inspector Christopher Thompson Ref: Paris Barrington Harassment – 13 February 2020.
Centred around the alleged theft of two Apple i-phones, DC Andy Mountford-Laker breaks all principles of Law and Order, by stating a theft crime had been committed, without any investigation to determine whether a crime has been committed.
Desperate to prosecute Matt Taylor for anything and everything they can; Sussex Police DC Andy Mountford-Laker, rejected Clarice Gutmann’s claim that she had swapped her laptop for Paris’s iphones, and which she went onto give to Taylor.
In a statement, Clarice Gutmann gives her side of the story:
“I Clarice Gutmann while living in the U.K. was forced to move from my home I was living in in Durham UK because my Children’s father abandoned me. I am a part of a Group of people who are learning about Law and our rights called Global Jury. I let the group know that I need a place to stay temporarily until I could find a more permanent solution. I have prior been a Sunday school teacher for some 22 yrs. I Have had Federal and International Crimes and Violations committed against me and my 3 American by U.K. corporations and it’s Agencies and am Fighting back for Justice! Paris at time was a part of our Group and was pretending to be someone He is not. He had done some things that made us question his motives but He pretended he was a good person just wanting to help and wanted to prove himself to the team. A week after I went to stay I told Paris I needed a new phone. I traded a laptop I had because it was too big and bulky for me to carry around and I had no WiFi anyway so I traded it for his help and for two cheap little 30.00 pound I phones which he promised he was going to help me get factory reset but did not. I gave Matt the phones because I had no use for them as I was able to get a cheap phone off a Indian peddler from Sunderland afterwards before I went to Matts but I still had them and gave them to him for helping me when I had no one. Matt Taylor is an Amazing guy. He’s kind and smart and he was an Absolute Gentleman the whole 2 months I was there. He treated me like a Sister and I felt like family and safe in his home. I consider Matt a great and honest man and Friend. I wound up leaving Paris place because he was becoming very rude and violent because I suggested he use the men’s public shower room while his bathroom was getting fixed. Paris is not a good person; he is a gender confused person who has a strong background of Ritual Abuse. He has many physiological traits that are downright scary and he needs extreme medical treatment for. Many of Paris friends are apart of the Satanic Ritual Group who I have been working with certain individuals to expose. I am also aware that many of these such individuals who work with in our society even to the highest echelon and even more scary some of these such corrupt people work in your Police forces and more creating a conflict of interest for their Innocent victims such is Matt. I am writing this as a true testament of what I know to the best of my knowledge and I wish to stand in Correctness with no malice at all times. All rights reserved UCC-103 without Prejudice as does Matt. Matt has many witnesses to the many crimes committed against him and we are also Seeking Justice for Matt Taylor from the Corruption happening within your establishment. Like it or not taking one’s positions without a full proper right to jury is Robbery. Your thieves in power need to return all that belongs to Matt Taylor. You do not have a right to Rob him of his intellectual property because you do not like what he Rights or because someone gave him a faulty device. You do not get to treat him like a criminal without due process. If you want us to abide by the law we’ll you very well better also be abiding by those same very laws. I also suggest you all lear what is the true law which applies to man verses laws which need only apply to Corporations, Good day!
Sincerely CM Gutmann.”
Paris Admitting to Firearm Offences
In these two clips of a conversation with both PC Michael Clarke and DC Mountford-Laker, Paris confesses to be under investigation for firearm offences.
DC Andy Mountford-Laker joins Sussex Police Hall of Shame.
Set to join the ranks of the Sussex Police Hall of Shame, DC Andy Mountford-Laker demonstrates his complete lack of professionalism when he refers to a victim of crime, single mother of three, Kaley Einav as “stinky knickers.”
As one concerned citizen complained to the IOPC in relation to DC Mountford-Laker’s conduct:
“I am particularly offended by the conduct of DC Andy Mountford-Laker, when he referred to Kaley Einav as “stinky knickers.”
Paris Barrington is currently under investigation for firearm and harassment offences, against Kaley Einav, in which he has maliciously called her “stinky knickers,” which has brought her considerable alarm, distress and fear.
It is loathsome and disgusting that a serving Sussex Police Officer should use the same language, as the suspect alleged to have harassed her, in conversation, and illustrates to me, that DC Andy Mountford-Laker is not fit to be a police officer.
As you can hear at the 25 minute 8 second mark, DC Mountford-Laker actually applauds and congratulates Paris Barrington, concerning a tirade of abuse, which resulted in Kaley Einav (a single mother of three) reporting Paris Barrington for harassment.
DC Mountford-Laker: “Paris I have to say, I did nothing but laugh. It was an excellent arh arh.”
Paris Barrington: “Analogy.”
DC Mountford-Laker: “You mention a young lady I don’t know her full name, I think you referred to her as ‘stinky knickers.’
Paris Barrington: “Oh Kaley.”
DC Mountford-Laker: She may have taken a couple of phones that belonged to you. And then you mentioned a male party, who you suspected had your phone.”
Paris Barrington: “Yeah Matt Taylor.”
DC Mountford-Laker: “Arh there you are, as you like to call him, ‘Fat Matt’, which there again, I do quite like, sorry, sorry, I can’t help it.”

Paul Whitehouse hit the headlines in 2001 following his resignation from his post, following the fatal shooting of James Ashley, 39, an unarmed man, who laid naked in his bed with his girlfriend, when he was shot and killed.
The then Home Secretary in Tony Blair’s government, David Blunkett, put pressure on Whitehouse to resign. He effectively invited the now defunct Sussex Police Authority, to dismiss Whitehouse if it wanted to restore public confidence in the county’s police force.
Retiring on a full pension; (a common trend among police officers who found themselves facing disciplinary action), Whitehouse maintained he had done nothing wrong, and that his police officers acting professionally, so much so that he promoted the two police officers after the event.
He said at the time, “I have done nothing wrong. I have behaved to the highest standards of integrity that I expect all my officers to have.”
Ashley was shot by a member of PC Chris Sherwood, a member of Sussex police Special Operations Unit, when it raided a flat in St Leonards, Hastings, in January 1998. Officers had been told that two men, probably armed, were in the flat with a large quantity of drugs.
Ashley, who had a conviction for manslaughter, was in bed with his girlfriend when the police broke in. He was shot when he apparently went to turn on a light.
PC Sherwood would later be acquitted of murder and manslaughter at the Old Bailey. Charges of criminal misconduct against four senior officers involved in planning the raid were also dropped.
The final straw appears to be Whitehouse’s subsequent decision to go ahead with the promotion of two of the officers and backdate their pay increases precipitated the events that led to his resignation. The move angered members of the police authority, who were not consulted. One source said it was the “final straw”.
Clearly defiant and insistent that he had done nothing wrong, Whitehouse said, “My integrity is my most important possession and to hear it called into question both hurts and angers me. I shall now carefully consider what action to take in respect of the scurrilous accusations that have been made against me.”
He questioned Mr Blunkett’s role and said, “politicians should avoid looking for scapegoats when faced with the consequences of fighting crime.”
“I hope he realizes that if he wants us to be firm in our fight against drugs then officers will have to make decisions that may have unfortunate consequences. It is essential in these circumstances that these officers are supported, providing they have acted with integrity themselves.”
It’s a shame that Whitehouse’s time in office ended in such disgrace, though allegations of cover-up and misconduct were also levelled against him and Sussex police, following the murder of 19 year old Katrina Taylor in 1996, and accused of ignoring corruption in Wealden District Council.
The fifth man is an alleged crime lord called Mark Slade, aka Marcel Sulc.
Simon Williams worked for Mark Slade by managing the post, deliveries and pick ups, from the property of 318 South Coast road, Peacehaven.
If David Neilson was called to give evidence, the jury would have heard that Mark Slade’s gang were using the flat above Mr Neilson, Top Flat, 318 Southcoast road, Peacehaven, East Sussex, for varying types of criminal activities from credit fraud and drugs.
According to Mr Neilson, Slade openly boasted of having a string of criminal convictions, including blackmail, deception, handling stolen goods, actual bodily hard, firearms, burglary and drug dealing.
Simon Williams worked for Slade as the ‘pick up man’, signing for goods delivered, and for answering the telephone.
Sussex Police have a history of targeting the elderly. If it isn’t a case of criminals dressing up as Sussex Police officers (of which they can buy the uniform from the Sussex Police EBay shop,) and defrauding elderly victims on their door-steps, its a case of Sussex police targeting concerned pensioners, based on malicious allegations, lies and here-say.
John Hoath, has been convicted of sending emails, concerning serious police corruption.
David ‘Joe’ Neilson remains in hiding, too scared to return home because he fears he’ll be killed by Sussex police.
Michael Coughtrey has spent years trying to bring justice to his brother, who was accused of attacking a police officer with a 7″ knife. The police lied…
John Paterson is awaiting trial in Chelmsford prison, based on the lies of an alleged satanic cult leader.
Edward Ellis is being hounded for helping people find justice in the British courts.
On the 15 January 2015, Joe was attacked at his home at 318a SouthCoast Road, Peacehaven. Joe recalls, that if it wasn’t for me coming to his rescue, he would have been killed on his door-step.
Joe called for the police, who turned up within minutes, spent 15 minutes laughing and joking with Joe’s attackers, before eventually knocking on Joe’s door, and arresting both him and I for attacking them!
Prospective MP angry over arrest – The Argus dated 21 January 2015, written by Rachel Millard
“I heard a noise at the back of my flat and thought I had left my caravan unlocked. Going out I found it was locked, but I unlocked it to see where the noise had come from. Just as I opened the door I heard a noise behind me, as I turned around I was struck in the right eye three times blinding me. He punched me to my body before falling into my caravan. I was I think semi conscious. The man said “that’s from Brotherton don’t waste your time calling the police”. I must have passed out.”
“TOO FRIGHTENED TO CALL THE POLICE”
“I don’t know for how long I made it back in to my flat which I had left unlocked. Getting inside I collapsed on my bed, coming to around about 2 am. I had wet and crapped myself. I was in extreme pain and too frightened to call the Police. I did the best with my eye which was still bleeding then cleaned myself up taking pain killers and sleeping tablets I went back to bed.”
“Coming to later that day I found a cut on my back and both knees where cut, the sight in my eye was OK. Looking back I believe the blows to this eye were done to blind me. The man was hidden behind the new fence.”
Who is Brotherton?
Who are the ‘Dark Forces’ at work in Sussex? Who would attack a disabled old aged pensioner?
The usual suspects are either Sussex Police or contractors attached to Sussex Police. Joe alleges that Sussex Police are in the pocket of a crime-lord called Mark Slade, based in Hastings but now thought to be somewhere in Bulgaria.
Mark Slade operated a number of security companies which acted as a front for drug dealing, credit fraud, theft and a variety of other serious crimes. Alarm bells should have sounded when looking at the names he used for his companies. Names such as Grim Limited, Grab-It Limited, Pure Profit Limited, Deadly Limited And F.U. Bigot Limited.
His crimes were so unique Parliament had to change the Laws to stop him. An amendment to the Theft Act 1968, was made in 1996 to outlaw the offence of ‘Obtaining a money transfer by deception’. Essentially he seized property owned by other people, using legal means through British courts, by repossessing flats for non-payment of nominal ground rents – usually of only around £50. The legal owners were powerless to stop him and Mark Slade went on to amass a multi-million pound fortune by repeating his scam on thousands of victims.
The Guardian newspaper reported on this and can be read further here.
This is not the first time Joe has been attacked by members of Mark Slade’s gang. After the murder of Katrina Taylor, he was attacked in-side his flat, but bizarrely, Sussex Police arrested him instead of the thugs who attacked him. (As what happened again in 15 January 2015.) This sums up everything Joe has been through. This vicious attack is the latest in a long line of attacks and if it wasn’t for a higher power protecting him, (His Guardian Angel), Joe would be dead now.
Let these words sink in; Joe is too scared to return home because he fears he’ll be killed by Sussex Police.
No wonder their current Chief Constable, Giles York, is standing down in shame.
Conker crazy Sussex Police Chief Constable Giles York, has announced he is standing down as the UK’s most senior policeman, amid rumours of an impending scandal set to hit the already scandal battered police force.
Having presided over a police force with the lowest moral in it’s history, Giles York is cruelly being compared to the chief rat, fleeing a sinking ship.
Having been criticized for his lack of leadership by retired police officers and the mainstream media, Giles York was appointed Chief Constable in 2014, taking over from his predecessor, Martin Richards.
Chief Constable Giles York has not shown leadership.
Retired Sussex police Detective Chief Superintendent Kevin Moore, has slammed Sussex police Chief Constable Giles York, by calling his leadership into question.
“Sussex Police lacks direction.”
“They don’t have their priorities straight.”
He singled York out for criticism, saying “he had not shown leadership.”
Under fire after a series of gaffs, Chief Constable York is cracking under the pressure, evident by his refusal to face the public.
With blood on his hands, following the murder of 19 year old Shana Grice, who appealed for help from Sussex Police, only to be given a penalty notice for wasting police time; Giles York has been widely ridiculed for hiding from serious questions, while embracing positive publicity with enthusiasm and zeal.
GILES YORK IN THE NEWS!
Following a spate of sex scandals during his time in charge, dozens of police officers have been exposed as sexual deviants, including paedophiles, rapists, prostitutes and perverts.
Leaving the force open to blackmail and extortion from organized crime, members of the public, are rightly saying that he should have been sacked along-time ago, rather than be allowed to retired early and receive his attractive police pension.
From the sublime to the ridiculous, York has been accused of preciding over a false flag event at the 2015 Shoreham Airport Crash –
To hiding an alien satanic sex cult within his ranks.
Famously quoted as saying he hasn’t got a problem with the public knowing how much he gets paid, but adverse to what he spends his wage on, Giles York explains his decision to stand down was “not an easy one.”
He said, “My decision to leave the service has not been an easy one and follows much soul searching with my family – there are so many compelling reasons to stay.
However, anyone in policing will know that the impact of this job on you and your family cannot be underestimated.”
As to how the job has impacted on his family remaining a mystery, Giles York started his police service in Maidstone with Kent Police in 1990 and was promoted through a number of operational areas, leaving as head of Special Branch in 2004.
Said to be “extremely ambitious,” by his predecessor Martin Richards, York first became an assistant chief constable with South Wales Police in 2005, where he was the lead for local policing, operational policing and crime, while also leading the Welsh Counter Terrorism and Serious and Organised Crime teams, Tarian.
Self-praising, York said, “It has been an absolute privilege to have been a police officer for more than 30 years, to have worked with so many fantastic, hard-working, loyal and selfless people – and an honour to have protected and served the public.
I have been lucky enough to have enjoyed a career that has been as rewarding as it has been challenging – from beat officer to the most senior detective in charge of policing the ports in Kent, to the operational world of counter-terrorism and serious organised crime in South Wales.
As a chief officer for the past 11 years, I have led Sussex Police through what has been one of the most extraordinary and difficult periods in policing history.
During that time, I am proud to have cultivated an increasingly diverse organisation that begins to reflect the communities we serve.”
Criticized for his force’s treatment of vulnerable victims of crime, York has come under sustained pressure by ex Royal Military Policeman, Matt Taylor, as to how his force was fooled by an alleged satanic cult leader.
As relevant today, as it was relevant 20 years ago. Nothing has changed…
Fifty police officers across the UK have been arrested as part of a crackdown on suspected paedophiles who pay to access child pornography websites, detectives revealed today.
The officers were among 1,300 people arrested on suspicion of accessing or downloading indecent images of children – some as young as five – from US-based Internet sites.
Thirty-five men were arrested in London this morning as part of the investigation – codenamed Operation Ore – following raids on 45 addresses across the capital.
Of the 50 policemen identified, eight have been charged to date and the remainder bailed pending further inquiries. Scotland Yard said none of those arrested today was a policeman.
At a press conference at Scotland Yard today, Jim Gamble, assistant chief constable of the National Crime Squad, said he was not surprised at the number of police officers among the suspects.
“As police officers, we should expect to be held accountable,” he said.
“Fifty police officers have been identified and we are not hiding that fact. We want you to know about that to reassure you.
“Police officers are member of the communities that they serve and there will be good people and bad people in the police.”
Mr Gamble said the 50 officers were among 1,200 Britons who had been identified as “category one or two” suspects – those who posed the greatest potential risk to children.
In addition, 40 children nationwide – 28 of them in London – had been identified as being at risk of being abused and appropriate steps had been taken with other agencies to ensure that all the youngsters were safe.
Before today’s arrests, the Metropolitan Police had executed 75 warrants across the capital with 65 arrests and more than 130 computers seized.
Although 7,000 suspected users of “pay-per-view” child pornography sites based in the US were identified in Britain, Mr Gamble said the actual number of offenders would probably be lower, partly due to duplicates.
The Met’s Deputy Assistant Commissioner, Carole Howlett, said today’s raids represented the single largest operation of its kind mounted so far by the force.
She added: “Our priority so far has been to identify those individuals on the list that pose the greatest threat to children now.
“But this process is on-going … and it will continue after today, even though it is extremely resource intensive.”
Ms Howlett also announced that the Home Office had agreed to allocate an extra £500,000 to support further action as part of Operation Ore.
She said the money would be used to provide extra training in computer forensics for officers across the country and to buy more equipment for analysing computers seized.
Commenting on today’s operation, children’s charity NSPCC said it had been assisting the Met by responding to any emerging child protection matters.
Colin Turner, head of NSPCC’s specialist investigation service, said: “The arrests send out a strong warning to those that think they can remain anonymous and escape the law by using the Internet to trade in child abuse images.
“Behind these indecent, abusive images are real children who will have suffered immense damage and trauma.”
Operation Ore is the UK wing of a huge FBI operation which traced 250,000 paedophiles worldwide last year through credit card details used to pay for downloading child porn.
The names of British suspects were passed on by US investigators.
Suspects were traced through the Landslide web site – a gateway to an international collection of child pornography sites.
Thomas Reedy, who ran the web site and earned millions from it, is now serving several life sentences in the US.
