Chris Fay accused the Metropolitan Police of acting like “gangsters”
A former child protection officer claimed last night a Special Branch detective held a gun to his head to stop him investigating a VIP paedophile ring.
Chris Fay said he was pinned to a wall and throttled before being given a chilling warning to “back away” from allegations surrounding the notorious Elm Guest House in Barnes, south-west London.
Young boys in care were allegedly taken there in the Eighties to be abused by high-profile MPs and other powerful establishment figures.
Mr Fay, who worked for the now-defunct National Association of Young People In Care, accused the Metropolitan Police of acting like “gangsters” when news of the scandal broke in 1990. He revealed how some Special Branch members routinely threatened him and his colleagues and even victims over a three-month period of intimidation.
His shocking claims come as West Yorkshire Police faces accusations that the force protected paedophile Jimmy Savile.

“I witnessed Special Branch officers manhandling them and turning them away with a warning to keep their mouths shut. It was blatant, it was open, they were acting like gangsters.
In 1982 Elm Guest House was raided by the vice squad but allegations of child abuse were never followed up.
Operation Fernbridge is now investigating the claims and two men have been charged with sexual offences.
Police confirmed that Liberal Democrat MP Sir Cyril Smith, who died three years ago, visited the premises.
Last night campaigner Bill Maloney, of Pie & Mash Films, who has helped raise awareness of abuse survivors and corruption, said: “These police cover-ups to protect the wealthy and the powerful need to stop now.
“Today’s victims are tomorrow’s witnesses.”
The Met Police declined to comment.
