THE Met has confirmed it could dramatically reopen its investigation into Prince Andrew’s paedophile pal Jeffrey Epstein.
It said last month the decision was down to the alleged offences mainly taking place overseas.
But the force now says its “pre-investigation” — a scoping exercise before a formal probe — “could be re-opened in light of the current revelations and further victims coming forward”.
In a possible nod to the Duke of York, the Met added: “There has been a renewed focus on Mr Epstein’s friends and associates which could potentially instigate further criminal and/or civil investigations against these individuals.”
The disclosure comes 24 hours after a US law chief shamed Prince Andrew by revealing the FBI tried to quiz him but got “zero co-operation”.
US attorney Geoffrey Berman added: “I can assure you that the investigation is moving forward.”
The FBI now have details from a witness who says she saw Andrew dancing with Virginia Roberts Giuffre at Tramp nightclub, London, in March 2001.
