It has been alleged that these dangerous child abusers had links to child abuse on the island of Jersey and beyond.

In The Mail on Sunday, 3 August 2008, Eileen Fairweather, wrote that Birmingham council illegally sent children into care on Jersey, according to a report by John Hemming, Liberal Democrat Member of Parliament for Birmingham Yardley.
According to The Mail on Sunday:
1. Member of Parliament John Hemming discovered that Children were illegally placed in care on Jersey by Birmingham social services.
The whereabouts of at least one of these children remains unknown.
2. John Hemming, believes children from other parts of the UK were taken to Jersey.
3. Hemming says: 'The Government has refused to order councils to check properly because it does not want to open a can of worms, on the links between abusers in England and Jersey.'
4. UK Schools Minister Kevin Brennan has told Parliament that children from the UK cannot be placed in care in Jersey without a court order.
Yet Birmingham children were sent to Jersey without such orders.
5. Hemming has asked English councils (local governments) to check their records but 'Most seem only to have done cursory checks, just checking recent electronic files, or asking around the office.'
Some councils, including Islington, have refused to check their records.
6. In Islington in North London a child sex network infiltrated 12 children's homes, while Margaret Hodge (friend of Tony Blair) was council leader.
Key staff, The Mail on Sunday revealed, were from Jersey or had strong Channel Islands connections.
Liz Davies, a former Islington senior social worker, said:
'It is becoming clear that children at Haut de la Garenne (on Jersey) were sent on holiday to children's homes in England which were also notorious for abuse, while the children in the English homes they went to were sent to Haut de la Garenne. They literally swapped beds...
'I am perturbed that police in Britain have not written to all local authorities on the mainland to demand they check which children they sent to Jersey.'
In 1982 Margaret Hodge (nee Oppenheimer) became Islington council leader.
In February 1990 Liz Davies and David Cofie, senior social workers, discovered evidence of sex abuse of children and reported it to a residents' meeting attended by Mrs Hodge.
In May 1990 Mr Cofie and Ms Davies were told by Lyn Cusack, assistant director of social services, to stop interviewing children about the abuse claims.
On 1 May 1997 Tony Blair moved from Islington to Downing Street.
In June 2003 Mrs Hodge was made minister for Children. (Another minister under fire: call for Hodge to quit over child ...)
The Independent, 9 March 2008, has an article on missing children (Our children are missing: Most vulnerable youngsters are targeted) which tells us the following:
Sarah Benford, 14, disappeared from Welford House children's home in Northampton in April 2000.
She is still missing.
The UK's Police National Missing Persons Bureau has 1,418 "open cases" of missing children.
According to Police figures more than 100 children who should be in care have been missing for at least four years.
Many children who go missing are not reported to the police.
Member of parliament Helen Southworth says: "All figures on children missing from anywhere are estimates because, astonishingly, there is no requirement for data to be recorded or collected nationally."
Almost 1,000 children went missing from UK residential and foster care in 2007.
The number that went missing from care increased from 570 in 1997 to 950 in 2007.
1. In May 2008, Jersey police charged Michael Aubin, 45, with alleged offences relating to the former Haut de la Garenne children's home in Jersey.
Mr Aubin, who was born in Jersey but now lives in Southampton, was arrested in the UK by Jersey officers.
He has been charged with one count of sodomy against a male child and three counts of indecent assault against two other male children.
All of the alleged offences took place between 1977 and 1980, police said.The investigators added further charges may follow

2. English solicitors Dyer Burdett & Co (DBC) have set up a legal team to advise former residents of the Haut de la Garenne children's home on Jersey.
DBC is already representing 18 people who were allegedly physically and sexually abused whilst in the care of Portsmouth Corporation during the 1950s and 60s.
The firm is investigating reports of a link between the Portsmouth cases and Haut de la Garenne. (Two more 'punishment cellars' discovered at Jersey care home)
3. Cosham's Children's Cottage Homes in Portsmouth, across the water from Jersey, is at the centre of a child abuse scandal.
Two former child residents of Cosham's Children's Cottage Homes claim children were taken from their dormitories during the night and disappeared.
Reg Tugatt, 59, a former resident of Cosham's Children's Cottage Homes says he saw 'suspicious holes dug'.
Reg has given police a map showing holes dug in the vicinity of Cosham's Children's Cottage Homes - in a wood and near an orchard. (Police handed map of holes at child abuse scandal home / Second 'abuse' victim speaks out)
Reg said he was taken into care at the home in 1956, aged eight, and stayed there for three years.
A spokeswoman for Hampshire Police said: 'We have no plans to dig up any sites in Portsmouth and continue to hold the position that there are no links between allegations made in reference to the Children's Cottage Homes in Cosham and the ongoing investigation in Jersey.'
Les Cummings, 63, is campaigning for an apology from Portsmouth City Council for the abuse he claims to have at the hands of his foster father and at the Children's Cottage Homes.
A total of 21 men and women told detectives they suffered physical and sexual abuse as children at Children's Cottage Homes.
A 78-year-old woman from Devon was arrested on suspicion of indecent assault but when police passed the file to Crown Prosecution Service lawyers they decided there was not enough evidence to charge her.
Les Cummings went to police to ask them to look again at their earlier investigation into the claims of 21 men and women.
The Crown Prosecution Service examined allegations against the centre but decided not to prosecute.
Both Reg and Les claim that a number of children were taken from their dormitories during the night and disappeared.

During the period 1958 - 1971, Paisnel abducted and abused a number of children.
Paisnel was a fan of the 15th-century Breton, Gilles de Rais, who murdered around 200 children.
The authorities discovered that Paisnel had a secret satanic chamber. (Sir Peter Crill obituary - Times Online)
Paisnel claimed he was a member of a satanic group. File: /files/Religion/Wicca/witchcraftDeviltry.txt
No other members of the 'black magic group' were ever arrested.
In 1971, Paisnel was convicted of thirteen sex offences against young children, ( The Human Beast ) and sent to jail.
"He claimed to have been defeated by the 'one-party oligarchy' of the Jersey establishment." - (Minister Sacked After Exposing Child Abuse)
"Jersey Police, following up a series of convictions for sexual offences involving officers from the island's Sea Cadet Corps, say they began to notice links between victims in those cases, and a number of island institutions, including Haut de la Garenne.

"Policemen, social workers and prominent public figures have been accused of belonging to a paedophile ring which indulged in a relentless campaign of physical and sexual abuse in children's homes in North Wales.
"The names of the alleged members of the ring have been given by witnesses in public sessions of the North Wales Child Abuse Tribunal, but they have been suppressed by the tribunal's chairman, Sir Ronald Waterhouse QC, who has threatened the media with High Court proceedings if they print them.
"The Guardian today publishes for the first time detailed evidence about the alleged ring, which is said to have been based in Wrexham, and to have infiltrated local children's homes over a 20 year period.
"The son of an influential peer who admitted to police that he had been having sex with an under-age boy from one of the homes. Despite his admission, he was never prosecuted.
"A powerful public official who has previously been cleared of abuse. Six witnesses have given separate accounts to the tribunal of his alleged rape of young boys. Another has reported him attending parties in Wrexham which were supplied with boys from a children's home.
"Two social workers and two police officers, one of whom was accused of abuse on four separate occasions and exonerated each time, another of whom has since been jailed in another part of the country for gross indecency with a child.
"More than a dozen other local men, including an executive with a local authority, a senior probation officer and a director of a major company."

"When she was eight, a nun pulled a hood over her head to help a priest rape her. The sexual abuse went on for three years until, aged 11, she fell pregnant. The same nun kicked her in the stomach until she miscarried."
She was on her way to the shops to buy a box of chocolates for her mum’s birthday.
According to The Sunday Times (Pressure on police to release paedophile dossier), 23 April 2006, Strathclyde Police have a dossier listing members of a child-abuse ring.
This dossier may identify the people who kidnapped Moira.
The dossier is said to implicate senior public figures, including senior police officers and members of the Crown Office and former Scottish Office.
These public figures are said to have abused children in Strathclyde (the Glasgow area) during the 1950s and 1960s.
The dossier is said to list vehicles and safe houses used in Glasgow, Monklands and Paisley where children were hidden before being taken to sex parties.
Strathclyde police have decided not to release the dossier.
The dossier was written by James Gallogley, a convicted child-abuser who died in Peterhead prison in 1999.
