The full report citation is Gallagher, Bernard (1998) Grappling with Smoke: Investigating and managing organised child sexual abuse: a good practice guide. Policy Practice Research Series. NSPCC, London, UK. ISBN 9780902498839. This Report copy  is available from Huddersfield Repository.
The article stated the report estimated that 240 paedophile rings were being investigated every year. It revealed the alarming organisation amongst paedophiles, even behind bars. It went on to show how they intimidated witnesses and even took children in to prisons, which were later targeted for abuse.
This blog is somewhat limited as I cannot read the report due to technical difficulties with some pdfs. However I trust others can and I just wanted to bring together the report with a few newspaper articles on it. My thanks to Murun at Spotlight on Abuse for his tireless dedication to the child abuse archive.
