“He named a number of persons as having been involved in the Cook Report investigation who he said were aware of the assault, which he said had been recorded by a covert video device with which he had been issued.”
Mr Atkinson told how police interviewed members of the Cook Report team, who said they were unaware of the allegation. They had not seen a video showing abuse and none of them recalled Mr Clarke even being in the lobbyist’s office.
After Mr Fellows was arrested, he insisted the allegations were true, saying the Cook Report staff were too afraid of losing their jobs or “falling foul of the Establishment” to corroborate them, Mr Atkinson said.
The programme in question was "...the only film out of 130 produced which was cancelled in this way." With appropriate excuses of course, as is the way.
In 1994, The Cook Report worked in co-operation with The Guardian newspaper on the infamous cash for questions story and had filmed a lobbyist claiming that he ‘used MPs like taxis’ and paid them to ask questions in parliament on behalf of clients. The programme arranged a sting operation to see if this claim was justified, but by the end of the then current series filming was incomplete. The Guardian subsequently decided to cover the story. Since the story would have been dated by the time the programme was back on air nearly six months later, it was cancelled on a pragmatic basis. It was the only film out of the 130 produced which was cancelled in this way.

Paedophilia expert Ray Wyre is himself accused of abusing boys in a care home
His name is also on the list of people accused of molesting youngsters, which is surprising considering he helped improve the lot of children vulnerable to sex abuse.
Wyre's work with TV reporter Roger Cook on child pornography led to it becoming a crime to possess images of child sex abuse in 1987. His death was called a "tragedy for law enforcement" by a senior police officer.
