A former Kingston man accused of lying about a Westminster VIP paedophile ring named two men as abusers in his first recorded police interview - his stepfather and Jimmy Savile, a court has heard.

Jurors were shown the video with Carl Beech weeping as he told a Wiltshire Police detective at a specialist unit in Swindon in 2012 that he had been abused by a group as a schoolboy, and claiming the disgraced TV presenter had joined in on occasion.

Beech attended the Coombe Hill Primary School, Rivermead Secondary School and The Tudor School during his childhood.

Newcastle Crown Court has heard the defendant is himself a "committed and manipulative paedophile" who has admitted in separate proceedings to making and possessing indecent images of boys and voyeurism.

The 51-year-old, now from Gloucester, told Detective Constable Mark Lewis his stepfather, the late Major Ray Beech, started beating him soon after he and his mother, the Rev Charmian Beech, moved into the officer's accommodation on an Army base.

Sitting on a red sofa, wearing a hoodie and beige trousers, Beech told the detective Maj Beech moved on to kissing him, and later committed sex acts on him and forced him to do the same.

Beech alleged his stepfather later took him to an Army base where an older officer, who he believed to be a lieutenant colonel, made him undress and looked at him.

He told the detective his stepfather was pleased with him, and later held his head under the water in his bath and said he was to do exactly as he was told "without question, without hesitation".

In the same interview, Beech said he was taken out of school to be abused by a group, telling the detective one of them was Savile.

He said: "I didn't know that at the time, part of me thought I did..."

Beech claimed Savile was there on three or four occasions and seriously sexually assaulted him each time, when he was aged nine or 10.

Beech told Det Con Lewis he recognised the voice but he did not see the TV star's face, and that he remembered seeing a gold necklace.

He said he recalled hearing Savile laughing and issuing instructions about what should happen.

Asked if he had told anyone when he was a child about his ordeal, he said "the dog" - an English setter.

The jury has heard that the detective told Beech at the start of the recording that what he said in the videoed interview should be as accurate and truthful as he could be.

The Wiltshire detective said he picked up the case after Beech first made allegations to the Metropolitan Police as part of Operation Yewtree into Savile.

Beech claimed he and other children were sexually abused by powerful figures - including former prime minister Ted Heath, the head of the Army and security chiefs - in the 1970s.

Others he named included former MP Harvey Proctor, the late Lord Brittan and other Army generals, and he claimed three children were murdered by the ring.

In the interview, Beech said one of his abusers was of Middle Eastern origin who had a dark-coloured Rolls Royce.

He later rang the detective and expressed concerns about making allegations about Saudi nationals who were "very high up" and had diplomatic status, saying that these figures were still alive and that he was unsure about disclosing more.

The court also heard Beech's stepfather was married to the defendant's mother for only four months, and had a history of domestic violence and drinking.

Beech, a former nurse and Care Quality Commission employee, denies 12 counts of perverting the course of justice and one of fraud relating to a £22,000 criminal injuries claim.
