Let’s deal with reality. Melanie Shaw sits in Sodexo high security prison Peterborough. She has been there on remand since her trial at Nottingham Crown Court on 25 July 2014. Members of the public who attended that first trial, report that Nottinghamshire Police and the Crown Prosecution Service produced no substantive evidence against Melanie on charges of Arson Reckless and Criminal Damage.
Following an extraordinary Crown Court hearing in which Nottingham Police and the CPS failed to present evidence, child abuse victim and key Beechwood abuse witness Melanie Shaw has been remanded in HMP Peterborough until October.
The Beechwood Children’s Home abuse witness is being held in Peterborough prison after unknown police action on Thursday, 10th July, and a secret court hearing on Friday, 11th July 2014. For the personal safety of the individual and in the wider public interest we are naming the witness as Melanie Shaw.
A key whistleblowing witness and victim of child abuse at Nottingham Beechwood Children’s Home is effectively missing after sending a text to the UK Column starting…”pls ring urgent, something has happened n I don’t trust the police and I may be locked up tomorrow…” Sent at 21:22 on Wednesday 9th July 2014 the UK Column has been trying to locate the witness ever since.

Following the UK Column’s exposure of the shocking sexual, racist and physical abuse of students at Oxford and Cherwell Valley College OCVC, we can now reveal that yet further complaints have been made in the last few weeks. Far from prompting a major investigation into child abuse by Oxfordshire Child Safeguarding Panel, the latest complaints have been channeled back into the very system that originally failed to take proper action. Is this to protect the past failings of those implicated?
Investigations into abuse, racism, pornographic videos, abuse of trust and neglect at Oxford and Cherwell Valley College have now restarted following exposure by the UK Column. But victims remain concerned that those who failed to protect them originally are again leading the investigation, and there will be a cover-up.
The agony of the family separating was indescribable torture. The children were given contact with us twice a week at our family home for 1.5 hours. We were always under visual supervision, with other “specialists” there observing us and our interaction with the children.
