Bio

I served for 25 years in the Metropolitan Police. I also brought up four children alone. I have gained international, national and local recognition for my role as a whistleblower. I now work with anti child abuse campaigners , victims/ survivors of abuse and police whistleblowers.

I am a retired Police Detective who specialised in child abuse investigations. Whilst serving on Scotland Yard’s Vice squad I uncovered a well organised and established child prostitution network involving children aged 9-14 years, all of which were subject to care orders. I disclosed the sheer extent of this vile criminality and those involved. I was then threatened and bullied in an attempt to silence me. I made an allegation of corruption against a senior police officer for the cover up and as a result I endured an horrendous campaign of bullying. I nearly lost my home, job, liberty and placement of my children for my efforts as a whistleblower.

I now work with victims and survivors in order to help them gain the justice they deserve as well as campaigning with other whistleblowers to change the law to give us the adequate protection we deserve.
