Many people believe the fire was deliberately set. With the five young people from Clwyd who died was a Health Visitor from Hampshire where Laud has a home and where Colvin lived.
The VIP's are said to have included top people in the law, commerce, and politics - across the party spectrum - at specially organised parties and other gatherings sometime on a one to one basis and sometimes at hotels where staff allegedly colluded with the exploitation of youngsters.
As well as a number of Councillors, including former Leader of Hampshire Council and Lord Mayor of Portsmouth, Freddie Emery Wallis who was convicted in 2001 of molesting young boys.
In the 1990's Derek Laud had an address at East Cottage, Needs Ore Point (shown on electiral records).
(Angus Stickler, BBC, gained some evidence about this).
It was not therefore the youngsters who were lying, but the officials.
The psychopathic behaviour of Laud and Lewis that has caused significant comment from time to time may be far more dangerous than just eccentric.
It is worthy of note that people around Derek Laud who challenge him appear to suffer significant harm - or to die - with unusual frequency.
Michael Colvin was an associate.
