A group of former police officers are to submit a dossier of statements to Scotland Yard which they say is evidence of a cover-up for so-called "VIP" paedophiles.

The ex-officers have agreed to draw up statements on their claims that police operations against paedophiles were closed down, just as they started to uncover child sex abuse by prominent people.

According to the investigative website, Exaro, they plan to deliver them to the Metropolitan Police Commissioner, Sir Bernard Hogan-Howe.They will also deliver their dossier to the overarching inquiry into child sex abuse, which has begun work, despite having no chairperson.

Two ex-Met officers have already come forward to the force on the current wide-ranging investigation into child sex abuse by a network of MPs and VIPs.

Detectives are appealing for information on the sixth anniversary of the murder of Davion Watt.

The 26-year-old was shot dead in Brixton in 2008. No murder weapon has ever been recovered.

No one has been prosecuted for the crime and police are renewing a plea for witnesses to come forward.

"Without anyone coming forward we fear that Davion's family may never get the justice they so desperately want. With our anniversary appeal, we hope that the intervening years since Davion's murder have seen the allegiances change of those that may have kept silent. And that those people can now re-examine their consciences and consider doing the right thing and help us prosecute those responsible, bringing closure to the case for Davion's family."

– Acting Detective Inspector Peter Hine, from the Trident Gang Crime Command's Legacy Team
