LABOUR deputy Tom Watson was part of a “little group” who supported VIP paedophile accuser Carl Beech, a court heard yesterday.
Beech, 51, told Mr Watson about the alleged abuse he suffered before going to cops, it was said.

He related details of supposed attacks by members of the Establishment, including Tory MPs, jurors were told.
Retired social worker Peter McElvie and investigative reporter Mark Conrad also supported him, the court heard. It led to stories published about abuse at MPs’ flats in Westminster’s Dolphin Square.
Vicar’s son Beech, of Gloucester, was also interviewed by Met Police officers.
He told Det Sgt James Townly: “Peter McElvie and Tom Watson formed part of the little group supporting me and putting my information out there to encourage other people to come forward — hence the piece they did on Dolphin Square.
“I went to meet Tom Watson in his office and talked to him at some length when they put that bit out there. It has been a positive experience for me.”
Beech also told officers Mr Conrad showed him 42 snaps of potential paedos to help him “fill in the blanks” in his memory before he went to police.
Beech alleged around 15 men attended weekly abuse parties, including ex-PM Ted Heath, ex-MP Harvey Proctor and former heads of MI5 and MI6.
