Now that John Allen is behind bars it’s time to ask a couple of questions.
Why were children in care from all around the UK moved to children’s care homes in John Allen’s control ?
Why were senior, influential, and powerful people including within Social Services in the UK recommending that children be transferred to these North Wales care homes, part of Bryn Alyn Community (Holdings) Limited a company that over the last 40 years has had at least 29 former members of staff convicted or accused of sexual or violent crimes against children?
I see that The Mirror are already asking similar questions in regards to exchanges of children between Angell Road Lambeth run by paedophile Michael John Carroll and homes run by paedophile John Allen.
But this goes far deeper than this one example and it now needs to be investigated.
Two notorious paedophiles were at the centre of a nationwide network of abusers which allegedly included both Labour and Tory politicians, a Mirror investigation has found.
Detectives suspected 16 years ago that the children’s home abuse ring spanned the country and involved hundreds of victims.
Official documents show paedophiles John Allen, 73, and Michael John Carroll, 66, were friends when they were abusing youngsters North Wales and London respectively in the 1980s.
