23 ex-pupils make allegations of sexual and physical abuse to Kesgrave Hall school inquiry detectives

Kesgrave Hall School in 1988
Detectives working on a two-year inquiry involving Kesgrave Hall have revealed they have been investigating complaints from 23 people involving allegations against 17 teachers and care workers.

However, a spokeswoman for Suffolk Constabulary, said eight of those accused have died.

At least three of those have died in the past twelve months, two after they had been arrested and the third when police went to his home in Bicester, Oxfordshire, on a separate matter.

Former care worker Kenneth Wheatley was found dead in April last year on a railway line near in Barnsley.

He had been arrested a few days earlier on suspicion of sexual offences against children at Kesgrave Hall.

Ex-teacher Alan Stancliffe, of Pontefract, died at a hospice in August after being bailed on suspicion of sexual offences.
