One of the most disturbing facts about Nottingham’s organised crime in the 80’s and 90’s is how Scotland Yard ‘protected’ some of the criminals involved.

Described as a “premier-league danger to the public” and a “sex-fuelled psychopath” Denton who had fled Jamaica for the murder of seven women was allowed by the British government to remain in the UK and run amok within the African community.
Their close police connection meant that drugs and firearms charges were dropped and both were able to sell crack cocaine enforcing their trade with guns without fear of arrest or prosecution.
Protected by Scotland Yard, Green and Denton also used their impunity from the law to embark on a serious organised crime spree for personal gain. Collectively they terrorised the African community in London and Nottingham robbing hundreds of people at gunpoint.
While in the service of SO11, Denton committed several violent crimes including the sexual assault of a 15-year-old schoolgirl.
