Police launch inquiry into child abuse at Kesgrave Hall Boys' School
Latest Blogs by Author
Former pupils of Kesgrave Hall boys’ school who made allegations of physical and sexual abuse in the 1980s have prompted a police inquiry.
The Guardian has reported that Suffolk Police have been urged to review a 1992 investigation into child abuse after several former boarding school pupils made assault allegations spanning the 1980s. No charges were bought after the several month long inquiries in 1992 although four members of staff were temporarily suspended. Tory MP Dr Daniel Poulter has now announced that Suffolk Police are conducting a fresh investigation into the alleged abuse suffered at Kesgrave Hall School and that some people who were interviewed in the original inquiry may be contacted again.
Suffolk Police have encouraged victims to contact the police and would like to reassure them that their complaints will be taken very seriously and investigated thoroughly.
