Fri night Radio 4's The World Tonight

Has an interview with a male victim, Kevin Cook, who says he only came forward when he discovered there was another male victim.
Ex-DPP says 3 of the 4 cases could have been prosecuted, the 3 corroborating each other, but the police didn't tell the complainants that there were other complainants; that corroboration hasn't been a legal requirement for years, and victims were not told that they could have anonymity if they went to court.

Says witnesses should have the option of giving evidence via video link instead of just behind a screen; thinks this is the sort of thing Keir Starmer has in mind.

Item starts 8mins in.
