Brooke was absolutely determined to get Stephen Ward by whatever means, fair or foul, and the latter was chosen.So he went to The Metropolitan Police, and they were up for it.Clarke was trapped, he'd been to Yonge's several times on invites - they were both brother freemasons.
Yonge who lived in a mansion on Shanklin, the Isle-of-Wight.
An investigation began immediately into Stephen Ward -- with instructions to 'find something and everything useful no matter how trivial' The CID were employed headed by CHIEF INSPECTOR SAMUEL HERBERT and DETECTIVE SERGEANT JOHN BURROWS, who chose DETECTIVE SERGEANT ARTHUR EUSTACE and DETECTIVE SERGEANT MICHAEL GLASSE who were considered as 'The Hunters' -- this special team of four were assembled and briefed by COMMANDER FRED C. DETECTIVE SUPERINTENDENT JAMES AXON was in charge of the 'field-work' and made the prolonged search for any evidence that would tilt the scales towards Ward.
Burrows and Eustace said (25yrs later), the case and investigation was not normal police practice as one usually investigated the circumstances after a crime had been committed, but this one was to 'invent a crime and find things to support it' Apart from this, everything found had to be logged and the Prime Minister had to be kept informed and receive copies of all the evidence and reports-- ' A closed copy for his eyes only' They realised they were being employed to go on 'a fishing expedition' to justify an expected catalogue of charges ---'Go and find one that will stick in a court of law' was the order from the Met Chief.
The eventual 'fit-up' trial was at the Old Bailey in Court No 1. He remained bias and belied anything said favourable of Ward by his defence Lawyer --- his brief was to silence Ward and put him in jail.
The tragedy here is that the police and judiciary succeeded and were about to impose a sentence of up to 14 years when Ward took an overdose and died in hospital.1963 saw the sensational trial of the corrupt and vicious career of Detective Sergeant Harry Challenor.
