The alleged fantasist accused of making 'heinous' false claims of VIP child sex abuse stood by his story yesterday.
Carl Beech insisted he was raped and tortured by a gang that included Army chiefs, politicians and TV presenter Jimmy Savile.
Entering the witness box for the first time, the 51-year-old vicar's son, previously known by the pseudonym Nick, told jurors how he was used as a human dartboard and given electric shocks by his alleged tormentors.
He also told Newcastle Crown Court that the former head of MI5, Sir Michael Hanley, threatened to make him 'disappear if I didn't do as I was told and no one would care'.
Repeating a claim he first made to police in 2014, Beech described how the ex-chief of the security service kidnapped his dog as a warning to comply with the paedophile ring's wishes.
Beech alleged that Sir Edward Heath was also part of the gang.
He claimed the former prime minister said he 'used to run the country' when they met at the private members' Carlton Club in central London.
In more than three hours of testimony, former health service manager Beech asserted that serial paedophile Savile – whom he said he recognised from his voice and mannerisms – raped him over a bath and held his head underwater.
He also repeated hotly-contested allegations he made to police in 2014 that former armed forces chief Field Marshal Edwin Bramall, now 95, was one of his abusers.
D-Day veteran Lord Bramall described his accusations as 'monstrous' after Scotland Yard officers raided his home and interviewed him under caution in 2015.
From the witness box, Beech also reasserted his previous claims against two more celebrated Army chiefs, Field Marshal Sir Roland Gibbs and General Sir Hugh Beach.
Via videolink to the court last week Sir Hugh, now 96, described the allegations as 'beyond grotesque'.
Beech's allegations against a number of high-profile figures, who also include ex-home secretary Leon Brittan and former Tory MP Harvey Proctor, were described as 'credible and true' by Scotland Yard at the start of its £2million investigation into his claims. The investigation ended after 16 months with no arrests or charges.'
