    In 2003 allegations by three children in Lewis, Scotland resulted in the arrest of eight people for sexual abuse occurring between 1990 and 2000. A 2005 investigation by the Social Work Inspection Agency found extensive evidence of sexual, physical and emotional abuse and neglect.[47] Police investigation resulted in allegations of an island-wide “Satanic paedophile ring”,[47][48] though charges were dropped nine months later following an inconclusive investigation.[47][48]

    A key witness who had implicated her family in the abuse and whose evidence was “vital” to the case of satanic abuse recanted her testimony in 2006[48][49] and the media raised questions about the nature of the police interviewing techniques.[48][49] with a police spokesperson replying that the witness was questioned appropriately and that allegations were made by numerous witnesses.[49]
