Ex-nurse who lied about murderous VIP paedophile ring sentenced to 18 years

A man who falsely claimed he was abused by a paedophile ring has been sentenced to 18 years in prison. Carl Beech said he was abused by a murderous VIP Westminster paedophile ring in the 1970s and 1980s. The Metropolitan Police spent £2 million looking into Carl Beech’s allegations, made over the course of hours’ worth of tearful interviews. The 51-year-old former nurse made malicious and deceitful claims about men including 91-year-old Normandy veteran Field Marshal Lord Bramall, the late Lord Brittan and former Tory MP Harvey Proctor.
