A child sex abuse victim has claimed he was molested by “very powerful people” at several locations connected to an alleged VIP paedophile ring.
Richard Kerr, who was a victim of abuse at Kincora Boys’ Home in Belfast, has claimed he was also attacked at the Dolphin Square luxury apartment complex and Elm Guest House, both located in London.
It is thought to be the first time that the three places have been linked in relation to claims of historical sex abuse by influential Westminster figures.
Mr Kerr was abused at Kincora in the 1970s and alleges he and two other boys were hand-picked to be trafficked to London in 1977 and sexually abused by men.
Both of the other men have since taken their own lives, Mr Kerr told Channel 4 News.
Insisting that the VIP paedophile ring did exist, he claims to have been abused in London by “men who had control and power over others”, some of whom he believes were politicians.
Dolphin Square in Pimlico, London, is said to have been used by an alleged VIP paedophile ring.
His most violent experience allegedly took place at the Elm Guest House in Barnes, south London, where he claims to have been tied up with his hands behind his back while men took photographs.
When the guest house was raided by police in 1981 it was reported that officers had found whips, chains and ropes.
Mr Kerr also claimed to have been taken to Dolphin Square, a block of apartments near Parliament which is now at the centre of allegations of child abuse and murders being investigated by Scotland Yard.
Asked if he would name his abusers, Mr Kerr said:
Last July, Home Secretary Theresa May announced a major public panel inquiry into whether paedophiles were sheltered in government, the NHS, police, the courts and the BBC.
The Independent Police Complaints Commission said earlier this month it is investigating 17 allegations of a police cover-up in relation to a VIP child sex abuse ring ranging from the 1970s to 2000s.
The full interview with Mr Kerr will be shown on Channel 4 News at 7pm.
