A notorious paedophile visited children’s homes around Britain before advising the Home Office on reform of the child care system, it emerged today. Peter Righton – a founding member of the Paedophile Information Exchange (PIE) which tried to decriminalise sex between children and adults – toured homes around the Midlands and North West before contributing to the Government paper in 1970. He was later convicted of importing child abuse images and evidence used to convict him is now at the centre of a new inquiry into allegations of a sex abuse gang linked to the British establishment. The Home Office has so far declined to comment on the new claims, but reiterated Home Secretary Theresa May’s comments that ‘the whole government take the allegations very seriously’.
