A catholic priest has been arrested in connection with alleged child abuse at a London guest house during the early 1980s, his diocese has said.
It is reported that Operation Fernbridge is looking at claims that senior political figures and others sexually abused boys at the Elm Guest House in Barnes.
The Diocese of East Anglia said one of those arrested is 66-year-old priest Tony McSweeney, from Norfolk. The other is a 70-year-old man who was arrested in East Sussex. We are currently working on various catholic related abuse cases and are examining the evidential and legal issues.
We would like to hear from anyone who has any knowledge of these matters.
