The Orange Coat – Sarah Baldry

The Orange Coat – Sarah Baldry [1]

The first part is full of suspense- why did Sarahs ex husband leave behind a computer without hard discs, a book of Gary Glitter and an orange coat amongst others things. Why did the police clear the flat for her ? or was it for him?- because he was a paedophile and also drugged her and raped her? Why did the police seemingly cover this up and not follow their own codes of practice.

The longer the police mess her about, the more you want her to get a grip and stop going along with their rediculous scenarios whilst she was in Dubai and her ex was in Australia. But she was a depressive and scared.

The book offers no real answers, the possibility of the police covering up a paedophile network is left hanging, but the author hopefully gets her catharsis by telling her story. This is another person who has found that the police are full of criminal behaviour but what were they covering up? There is a real possibility that the Met were covering up for a paedophile network.

Sarah ends with “I hope that one day someone else courageous can now take on where I have let off”

A review is available here [2]

She would stand a better chance of someone taking up her case if she made  details freely available online.

Met Police workers named that she dealt with are DI Harrison, Constable Clive Blakely – the main contact that Sarah feels misled her, John Pilton Inspector Professional Standards and a Jane Pillington. She states these are pseudonyms but that the story is true.
