Police who raided Lord Brittan’s home in VIP sex probe just weeks after he died swabbed shoes

Lord Brittan’s shoes were swabbed for DNA as police officers combed through his garden in front of his grieving widow, yesterday’s damning report revealed.

Leon Brittan’s country home in north Yorkshire was descended on by 20 police officers at 8.20am on March 4, 2015, as part of Operation Midland – the police unit dedicated to uncovering the existence of a made-up VIP Westminster sex ring.

Just weeks after Lord Proctor’s death on January 21 his grieving widow was forced to watch with no explanation as officers read through her husband’s condolence letters.

Their housekeeper said it looked like officers were searching his garden for shallow graves. 

The police presence attracted attention from neighbours and Lady Brittan begged for her curtains to be closed to offer privacy.

At the same time Lord Bramall’s residence in Surrey and the home Harvey Proctor was given on the Belvoir estate where he worked as private secretary to the Duke of Rutland were both turned upside down.

But as the elderly gentlemen’s behaviour in the 1970s and 1980s was called in to question, Carl Beech – a former hospital manager and now a convicted liar – was telling news agency Exavo News the search had started.

Sir Richard Henriques’ report in to Operation Midland detailed the scene Lady Brittan faced during the police search of her husband’s belongings. 

The report read: ‘Lady Brittan found the search very distressing. There was a large number of officers and she was still grieving; Lord Brittan having died only weeks earlier.

‘She was deeply shocked by the search. One particular event caused much distress. Officers searched through letters of condolence.’ 

Sir Richard finds the warrants were ‘obtained unlawfully’ when they were authorised by a detective inspector and applied for by a detective sergeant.

The application said Beech’s accusations of the fictitious crimes had ‘remained consistent’ despite multiple statements not quite adding up.  

Sir Richard said: ‘Throughout the day Lord Bramall asked questions in an endeavour to ascertain the nature of the allegations. 

‘He wishes to know what the magistrate had been told in order to grant the warrant but was not told.’ 

Harvey Proctor, 72, said he only feels 'icy contempt' for Carl Beech - who said he was directly involved in two murders and multiple counts of abuse in the 1970s and 1980s. Pictured, in July

It comes as Harvey Proctor today spoke about his ongoing battle with PTSD after ‘Nick’ the fantasist told police the former Tory MP was a member of a VIP pedophile ring. 

The 72-year-old revealed he is still under ‘substantial emotional stress’ from a ‘matter that has been going on for years’ – after Carl Beech claimed he was directly involved in two murders and multiple counts of abuse in the 1970s and 1980s.

Tearful Mr Proctor’s voice broke as he said he ‘will be thinking about these matters on the day I die’ and he repeatedly apologised for being emotional.

‘I tried to keep strong but sometimes I do get emotional – I’m sorry if I do,’ he told LBC.   

He ‘would not wish my worst enemy to go through what I, my family and my friends have gone through’ and called the ordeal ‘horrendous’ as he struggled for words.
