One of Tony Blair’s ministers was among a group of men suspected of sexually abusing children at a home run by a convicted paedophile.
But the probe was halted soon after an ex-social services boss told police of his alleged evening visits in the early 1980s.
Official documents seen by the Daily Mirror during a 16-month investigation reveal former residents told detectives that a group of paedophiles attacked children in a private flat in the home.
But two former Lambeth social services employees involved in the case suspect a cover-up because experienced detective Clive Driscoll was removed from the investigation and given other duties.
One, a former manager who alerted police in 1998, said: “One wonders why Scotland Yard would be so desperate to stop it being investigated.
“I believe it was stopped because somebody in power was trying to prevent any further investigation into the politician.”
And Dr Nigel Goldie, a council boss in charge of child protection in 1998, said: “There were some allegations that children were being abused by one or two prominent persons.She said she told top Lambeth officials at the time she suspected Carroll was at the centre of a paedophile ring at the home.
Bosses learned in 1986 that he was convicted of sexually assaulting a boy of 12 in the Wirral in 1966.
But the pervert was allowed to continue running the home until 1991.
Carroll was finally arrested in the summer of 1998 and convicted of a string of child sex attacks dating back three decades including assaults on youngsters in Angell Road.

PR guru Max Clifford has been found guilty of a string of sex attacks on teenage girls.
The 71-year-old became the first person to be convicted under the high profile Operation Yewtree sex crime investigation at Southwark Crown Court.
He was found guilty of eight indecent assaults, cleared of two and the jury was unable to reach a verdict on one other.
The guilty verdicts relate to four women, aged between 15 and 19 at the time of the offences, between 1978 and 1984….
Clifford was released on bail until his sentencing on Friday, but Judge Anthony Leonard QC warned him this was no reflection on the sentence that will be passed.
He said: “You must realise that the fact I have given you bail is no indication of what the final sentence will be.”
Clifford repeatedly denied the claims, calling his arrest and prosecution “a nightmare” and protesting his innocence….
