"More Child Abuse Than First Thought?"

New claims of abuse at girls’ home

SIX women made complaints to the police during the historical child abuse inquiry about alleged abuse they suffered when children at the former Grouville Girls’ Home.

One of them, Jean Neil (formerly Parker)  has included details of alleged abuse she suffered while she was at the home between 1941 and 1951 in a book she has written.

She is among those seeking compensation from the States for what she allegedly suffered.

The police investigated the complaints, but say that there was insufficient evidence to mount a prosecution.
