One Survivors Message

So here I am 45 years on from the year I was abandoned to the home from hell known as Bryn Alyn Hall. I was just 12 and wrongly placed 'in care' by the County Borough of Birkenhead Childrens Committee under Section 1 of the 1948 Childrens Act, on the basis of; (1) 'has been and remains abanondoned by his parents' and (2) 'is neccssary in the interests of the welfare of the child'.
On Monday 12 May 1969 I arrived at Bryn Alyn Hall. It was on that day the 'real me' died; effectively assassinated by the process of abandonment.

The following 4 years destroyed all that I was, and all that I could have become and I emerged as an angry and confused victim of child abuse and brutal institutionalisation. I had been systamatically depersonalised and traumatised by a private system of 'childcare' that had been set up as a 'business created for profit' which was managed by a predatory paedohphile and financed by the authorities.
For me it was like being in a car crash that lasted 4 years and it left me broken on the inside. No one could see the damage; I was mentally ill and primarily suffering from Psychosexual Trauma Disorder and PTSD.
More than one adult is responsible for what happened to me and on Monday 6th October 2014 one of them will be held to account in a Crown Court. I will have to recall and relive multiple details that are painful and sometimes over bearing to consider, however, I am not alone in this fight for justice. I am one of many.
Together we have a voice that is now being heard and together we are seeking justice for each other and for those who are dead, or unable to join us.
'We' may have had our differences in the past but I believe that each and everyone one of us is a valuable human being who deserves justice and peace of mind.
This is just the begining - stay strong.

Azov Films Suspect, Dead

Coming just weeks after Dr Myles Bradbury pleaded guilty to crimes against children in his care.

A paedophile deputy headmaster who secretly filmed his pupils was left free to continue his abuse for more than two years after police failed to act on information that he could be a danger to children.
Martin Goldberg, who had worked at the £10,000-a-year private school for more than 20 years, was named to British authorities as a suspect in July 2012.
He was among 2,345 individuals suspected of having accessed child pornography whose names were handed to the UK’s Child Exploitation and Online Protection Centre (CEOP) following a major inquiry in Canada.
But the CEOP failed to act on the information from Toronto Police’s Operation Spade – and it was only in November last year that Essex Police were told that Goldberg had been buying videos of naked boys from a vendor based in Canada.
Even then, Essex Police did nothing about the 46-year-old until three weeks ago – almost a year after being informed.
Nor did officers warn Thorpe Hall School in Southend, where Goldberg, an IT expert, regularly took children away on school trips.
The blunders were compounded when officers failed in a bid to get a search warrant from a magistrate.
So they simply visited the paedophile’s home, just over a mile from the school, and politely asked if they could examine his computer. He refused and the officers left without arresting him.

Within hours, however, he tried to destroy the evidence by reportedly setting fire to his computer and other devices and paperwork – and then hanged himself in the garage of his £360,000 four-bedroom home.
Detectives were still able to recover 75 images taken on a camera that was hidden in a bag in the school’s male changing rooms.
