Warrant used to raid Lord Bramall’s home ignored eight issues with fantasist Carl Beech’s paedo claims

A POLICE raid at the home of Lord Bramall should never have gone ahead because of doubts about paedo fantasist Carl Beech, it was claimed last night.

A warrant application presented to a district judge reportedly ignored eight problems with his evidence.

Instead, Det Sgt Eric Sword wrote “N/A” next to a box asking for “anything that reasonably might call into question the credibility of the information you have received”.

Police reportedly knew that no other witnesses had come forward to back Beech’s story of a VIP paedophile ring.

There was no trace of a friend he said was killed in a hit and run in 1979 and no identity for another supposedly murdered boy.

And there was no historical evidence of Beech’s physical abuse, injuries or absence from school.

In 2015 District Judge Howard Riddle ruled the search of Lord Bramall’s Surrey home could go ahead after hearing that Beech was consistent and credible.

Ex-Armed Forces head Lord Bramall later received £100,000 in compensation from the Met Police over its probe into the lies told about him.

Beech got 18 years’ jail last month.
