Two men were arrested this morning by Scotland Yard detectives investigating allegations of paedophilia and other members of the establishment in the 1980s.
The men, one aged 66 from Norfolk and a second aged 70 from East Sussex, were held in early morning raids on suspicion of sexual offences. They are being questioned in custody.
The arrests were made by officers from Operation Fernbridge, the Metropolitan Police inquiry into allegations of abuse of children at Elm Guest House in Rock’s Lane, Barnes, south-west London.
Children from Grafton Close, a local children’s home run by Richmond Council, are alleged to have been supplied to Elm Guest House.
