John Mann has named the Notts children’s homes caught up in allegations of child abuse following new victims coming forward.

The Bassetlaw MP commented: “There have been a large number of new allegations made in the last fortnight that historic child abuse took place at several local children’s homes.”

“Confidentiality is guaranteed for everyone who has come forward and I have passed on information to the police.”

“I will continue to work with victims and the police to get to the truth.”

“After speaking to many victims I have decided to name the children’s homes allegedly involved to encourage anyone with information to come forward. There are more people out there who can help to uncover the abuse and assist the victims in achieving justice.”

Two of the children’s homes, Repton Lodge and Ashley House, were based in Worksop.

The full list of homes where allegations of abuse have been raised is as follows:

Repton Lodge – Sparken Hill, Worksop
