Why did it take so long for justice to be done? Paedophile policeman honoured by the Queen is finally jailed 25 YEARS after abuse was first reported

Disgraced former officer Danny Bryant, 65, was finally jailed this week for six-and-a-half years for a decade of abuse involving five boys
Devon and Cornwall constable admitted ten counts of indecent assault against five boys between 1974 and 1985
Four reports made to police but no charges brought against Bryant
Judge David Ticehurst said it was 'a matter of regret that the force did not bring him to justice before'

Police have been forced to deny claims the force covered up the crimes of a paedophile policeman and allowed him to escape justice for 25 years.

Danny Bryant, 65, was finally jailed this week for six-and-a-half years for a decade of abuse involving five boys.

Many of the offences took place as he ran a police life-saving club - a role that saw him honoured by the Queen with the British Empire Medal.

One of his victims said Bryant abused him from the age of 14 and in 1988 he gave a detailed statement to police when he heard another boy had fallen into his clutches.

Tormented Russell Dawson, who waived his right to anonymity, said police wrote back saying they 'did not feel they had enough evidence to prosecute'.
