UK: Care centre abuse shock

POLICE probing claims of physical and sexual abuse at a former Wigan care facility say they are following no fewer than nine lines of inquiry.

Investigating officers have already quizzed two people in connection with the allegations of assaults at Woodend Assessment Centre in Atherton between the 1970s and 90s.

Those cases are ongoing and the inquiry team has also identified a further three people it intends to interview.

The suspects are believed to be carers at the remand centre which looked after boys from the care system including the poet Lemn Sissay (pictured) who has spoken publicly of the abuse there.

GMP said it was dealing with 35 alleged victims or complainants and there are currently nine live investigations.  (more...)

Even the lamestream media takes notice of the elephant in the room:

So, what can we expect from the inquiry?
