    TOP KIDS’ DOCTOR JAILED FOR CHILD PORN (Daily Mirror, 19th December 1986)

    A top children’s doctor who secretly ran a lucrative child porn ring was jailed for 12 months yesterday.
    Professor Oliver Brooke, 45, was recognised as a world authority on malnutrition in babies.
    But at St George’s Hospital Medical School, London, the professor kept thousands of porn photos of children in his filing cabinet.
    And he had a mailing list of customers all over Britain.
    Jailing him at Kingston Crown Court, Mr Justice McCowan said: “You pose a grave danger to children.
    “Society must be protected from people who peddle this dangerous filth.”
    Professor Brooke, happily married and father of four, gathered material on foreign lecture tours, visiting red-light districts.
    He advertised the porn in girlie magazines, giving an accommodation address.
    Scotland Yard’s Obscene Publications Squad stumbled across his racket as they checked a lead in another case.
    They went to the accommodation address and for the first time found out about Brooke.
    At 7am a team of police and detectives hammered on the door of his luxury Putney home.
    Brooke confessed all. He told police he kept his porn material at this office.
    There the police searched a four-drawer filing cabinet. In the top three drawers were medical records.
    In the bottom were more than 3,000 pictures of children in various sexual poses.
    When police charged him Brooke said: “I need help, don’t I?”
