Scotland Yard’s anti-corruption command are investigating claims that evidence the minister was part of a paedophile ring in Lambeth, South London, in the 1980s was covered up.
Retired detective Clive Driscoll says he was stopped from investigating the Labour star in 1998 after he named the politician as a suspect.
The Daily Mirror has now obtained papers which prove for the first time that Mr Driscoll’s children’s home probe was being monitored by senior civil servants and ministers before it was halted.
They include briefings written for the Blair administration just hours after the detective allegedly first named the minister as a suspect.
The officer was removed from the investigation three months later.
Looks like we’re into a ‘Game of Thrones’ political paedo showdown
Will they catch any live ones?
