Third arrest in Elm Guest House investigation into alleged paedophile ring

 

Detectives investigating claims of historic child abuse at a guest house in the 1980s have made a third arrest, Scotland Yard said.

A 69-year-old man was held in west London on suspicion of possessing indecent images of children and has been released on bail until September.

He is the third person to be arrested as part of Operation Fernbridge, an investigation into allegations of sexual abuse at the Elm Guest House in Barnes, south west London.

Two other men, aged 66 and 70, who were previously arrested as part of the inquiry are due to answer police bail this month.
