Celebrities, politicians and VIPs had their sex attack files hidden from investigating officers by police top brass

Hundreds of files on celebrities, politicians and other VIPs accused of sex attacks and abuse were so heavily protected by senior police that investigating officers could not access them, it emerged today.

Information on high profile suspects was marked as ‘secret’ or ‘restricted’ and only available to a small number of officers – a system which may have helped prolific offenders like Jimmy Savile and MP Cyril Smith escape prosecution.

The approach to sensitive files was designed to stop officers from leaking information to the media, experts say.
