The North Wales child abuse scandal was the subject of a three-year, £13 million investigation into the physical and sexual abuse of children in care homes in the counties of Clwyd and Gwynedd, in North Wales, including the Bryn Estyn children's home at Wrexham, between 1974 and 1990. The report into the scandal, headed by retired High Court judge Sir Ronald Waterhouse QC, which was published in 2000, resulted in changes in policy in England and Wales into how authorities deal with children in care, and to the settling of 140 compensation claims on behalf of victims of abuse.

North Wales child abuse scandal The North Wales child abuse scandal was the subject of a three-year, £13 million investigation into the physical and sexual abuse of children in care homes in the counties of Clwyd and Gwynedd, in North Wales, including the Bryn Estyn children's home at Wrexham, between 1974 and 1990. The report into the scandal, headed by retired High Court judge Sir Ronald Waterhouse QC, which was published in 2000, resulted in changes in policy in England and Wales into how authorities deal with children in care, and to the settling of 140 compensation claims on behalf of victims of child abuse. In November 2012, new allegations led to the Prime Minister, David Cameron, announcing that a senior independent figure, later named as Mrs Justice Julia Macur, would examine the conduct and remit of the Waterhouse Inquiry. In addition, the Home Secretary, Theresa May, announced a new police inquiry into how the original allegations were dealt with, as well as an investigation of any new alle ...

Farmers back South East Irrigation Scheme TFGA Media Release Tasmanian farmers today welcomed the go ahead for the 11,317 ha South East Irrigation Scheme. The federal Department of the Environment yesterday cleared the way for the scheme to go ahead and be completed by 2015/16. It supplies 6000 ML of water sourced from the Derwent at Bryn Estyn and pumped east by a pipeline network. “This extension to the existing irrigated area in the south-east will transform farmland in the area bounded by Brighton, Tea Tree, Campania, Orielton, Sorell and Forcett,” Tasmanian Farmers and Graziers Association chief executive Jan Davis said today. "Once again our farmers have backed a new irrigation scheme to the hilt, using their own money to invest in water allocations. “In time, we expect this scheme will result in similar agricultural expansion as has occurred in the nearby Coal River valley. There will be new opportunities for agricultural, horticultural and viticulture enterprises in this large area of the so ...

Fellowship of paedophiles – Cover-up They were involved in a paedophile ring network that had spread the length of the British Isles Rod Richards, a former Conservative MP and ex-leader of the Welsh Tories, made the shocking allegation that he had seen evidence linking Sir Peter Morrison to the North Wales children’s homes case, in which up to 650 children in 40 homes were sexually, physically and emotionally abused over 20 years. Morrison with Baroness Thatcher in 1990 Mr Richards also linked a second leading Tory grandee – now dead – to the scandals at homes including Bryn Estyn and Bryn Alyn Hall, both near Wrexham. He said official documents had identified the pair as frequent, unexplained visitors to the care homes. Sir Peter Morrison was one of Margaret Thatcher’s closest advisers, and also had links to another alleged paedophile, former prime minister Ted heath who was implemented in abusing boys in Jersey. Mr Richard’s intervention follows claims last week by former Tory Minister Edwin ...
Two Brothers talk about the child abuse in Bryn Estyn North Wales A tragic tale of two brothers Keith and Tom Gregory From Wales on-line. "Two brothers brutalised in a notorious Welsh care home have opened up on the abuse they endured. Keith and Tony Gregory, from Wrexham, ended up in the town’s Bryn Estyn home after playing truant from school. Keith, 55, now a Wrexham councillor, says his problems began because he suffered deafness and was an undiagnosed dyslexic who struggled to keep up in his infants and junior schools. He was first sent to a Liverpool care home, where he says he experienced the kind of abuse that would later define the three years he spent in Bryn Estyn between 1972 and 1975. On the first day he arrived at Bryn Estyn, Keith says he was left bloodied and battered by a master with cane marks from his neck down to his legs after leaning against a wall instead of standing to attention. Tony, 50, who was at Bryn Estyn for around 18 months between 1977 and 1978, said he became aggressive ...

Police investigating claims of abuse at Bryn Estyn children's home in Wrexham and other institutions in 70s and 80s
I see the comments about the murder of vet Catherine Gowing from County Ofally ireland. Given the history of N Wales cops, Bryn Estyn boys home, does anyone believe that Catherines flat-mate murdered her and cut off her arms and legs, and inner bodyparts, - I dont! This smacks of a ritual murder and right on the highest satanic date of the year - Halloween! Given that we know a paedo ring- possibly a upper class satanic coven exists in this area - can this be ruled out? And it is also known that this paedo ring has links to another paedo ring in Ireland, in Kilkenny, Dublin and no doubt in Ofally!

The terms of reference (TOR's), like most inquiries are so narrow as to make them nor worth the paper they're printed on. This is especially true of the Bryn Estyn investigation. These TOR's which did not permit the evidence gathered for abusers outside of the ambit of the highly restrictive inquiry were consequently ignored, so much so that important photographs of abusers were destroyed, final reports pulped and people in high profile roles and other positions of power getting let off. Gagging orders, which have subsequently been extended on numerous occasions continue to protect these 'elitists' while survivors get treated like outcasts and continue to be treated worse than dogs. It's disgusting that one of the main whistle-blowers almost lost his life last week as a result of brake tampering which sought to silence him for good, especially given he is the recipient of one of only twelve reports still in existence. There are other whistle-blowers who hopefully can and will get the information, includin ...

Stories of Supposed 'Paedophile' ings Saturday, November 10, 2012 Not the first time BBC Newsnight completely screwed-up over bogus stories re Bryn Estyn -- the very same North Wales children's home. In all these stories of supposed 'paedophile' rings there is either no truth whatsoever or just a kernel of it. Here there was indeed a guilty party, but just the one member of staff: no other staff members, and nobody on the 'outside'; famous or otherwise. All the rest is non-proven, non-provable and very likely complete fabrication. This (below) is from the website of the late Richard Webster -- the brilliant author of Why Freud Was Wrong and exposés of bogus 'false memory', 'satanic' and child sex abuse scandals: an article he wrote for The New Statesman which appeared on 19 February 1999. What the BBC did not tell us ON MONDAY 25 January 1999, immediately after Newsnight, BBC2 broadcast a documentary, A Place of Safety, about sexual and physical abuse in children's homes in North Wales. Many who saw it f ...

WHO FIXED THE TRIBUNAL? “THE CASE of the Flawed Tribunal” raises serious questions about Britain’s only child abuse tribunal. The Tribunal was a £14 million inquiry, set up by Parliament, to answer all the questions that had been raised about child abuse in North Wales in the 1970s and 1980s. One of the Tribunal’s key tasks was to examine if the North Wales Police had done everything in its power to track down child abusers. The REBECCA investigation shows that the Tribunal failed to explore the issue properly. Why didn't the three members of the North Wales Child Abuse Tribunal hear the evidence of an important witness? It proves that a witness with important information — who claimed he reported child abuse allegations a full decade before one of the key abusers was brought to book — was never heard. Des Frost worked for John Allen, the owner of the Bryn Alyn private children's home. Allen was goaled in 1995 for abusing residents. More than a decade earlier Frost claimed he’d gone to the ...

Dear Ed Just a few minutes ago, as yet unconfirmed news arrived to say that the Bryn Estyn whistleblower and long-term fighter for justice against institutional sex abuse Steven Messham has been found safe and well. It’s a relief. But let me give you just a glimmer of what this man has had to suffer – for the nth time – at the hands of tabloid hacks, justice-perverting smears, and neolithic views about mental health problems over the last 36 hours. A disingenuously patronising piece in the Mail on Sunday by Lord McAlpine. A foul piece of smear journalism from two Mail hacks with a sorry track-record of pro-institutional, anti-accuser mistakes. And being referred to as “a weirdo” by the truly appalling David Mellor. Do I give a monkey’s about Jimmy Savile, Gary Glitter, Freddie Starr, or the McAlpine family? Not really. Do I give a toss about blamestorming the BBC? No, not even slightly. Here’s why, Edward, Her Majesty’s Leader of the Opposition. Mostly what I care about is horribly blighte ...

The BBC director-general has resigned after a Newsnight report wrongly implicated former Conservative Party treasurer Lord McAlpine in a child abuse scandal. George Entwistle said the "wholly exceptional" events of last week had convinced him he should stand down. He made the announcement outside New Broadcasting House at 9pm, alongside BBC Trust chairman Lord Patten. He told reporters: "When appointed to the role, with 23 years' experience as a producer and leader at the BBC, I was confident the trustees had chosen the best candidate for the post, and the right person to tackle the challenges and opportunities ahead. Lawyers say Lord McAlpine's reputation has been "severely damaged" "However, the wholly exceptional events of the past few weeks have led me to conclude that the BBC should appoint a new leader." Lord Patten said it was "one of the saddest evenings of my public life". "At the heart of the BBC is its role as a trusted global news organisation," he continued. "As the editor-in-chief of that ne ...

Lord McAlpine: 'I am not the Tory paedophile and I DID NOT sexually abuse anyone at Bryn Estyn'
'Identity mix-up' in abuse claim The abuse claims under investigation centre around the Bryn Estyn children's home in North Wales New claims have emerged about the identity of a man alleged to have abused children from care homes in North Wales. Last Friday on the BBC's Newsnight, former resident Steve Messham claimed he was abused by a senior politician of the Thatcher era, who was not named. Now the Guardian says the alleged abuse was not carried out by the politician. It may have been committed by a relative with the same surname, who has since died, it says. In 2000 the Waterhouse report, set up to investigate the North Wales abuse claims, ruled that the evidence about the identity of the attacker was inconclusive. The government has set up a fresh investigation into claims of abuse at the care homes, led by Keith Bristow of the National Crime Agency. Commenting on the Newsnight item in which Steve Messham made the abuse allegations, the BBC has said: "This investigation set out to explore alleged fai ...
Boys were reportedly molested to entertain Savile at Bryn Estyn care home in Wrexham, North Wales. One victim said he was raped repeatedly by deputy head of the home Peter Howarth. He said that he and other boys would also have their pyjama bottoms pulled down by Howarth for Savile's entertainment. The boy, known as "Ben" said that Savile would regularly visit the care home with his brother in a chauffeured limousine. Boys would be taken to visit him at Howarth's flat if they behaved well. The victim told The Sun newspaper: "Howarth pulled down my pyjama bottoms in front of Savile. I was helpless as Jimmy watched. He thought it funny entertainment. This happened to a number of boys." According to "Ben", Savile would ask him: "What do you want me to do? Can I fix it for you." The victim added: "He kept on looking at me and smiling and laughing. Then he started rubbing my leg. After that I went to bed but he had other children brought up to him." Howarth was one of the few people convicted through the origi ...
Jimmy Savile was questioned by police investigating the Yorkshire Ripper murders, a senior officer who worked on the inquiry has revealed. Former West Yorkshire Police detective John Stainthorpe said the disgraced presenter was a suspect in the notorious case more than 30 years ago. Savile, who died last year aged 84, has also been linked to allegations of abuse at a care home in North Wales, according to reports. The Sun newspaper claimed boys were molested for the former DJ's "entertainment" at Bryn Estyn in the 1970s. Yorkshire Ripper Peter Sutcliffe has jumped to the defence of Savile, who he claims is innocent and befriended him during visits to Broadmoor high security hospital. Mr Stainthorpe, who spent 40 years in the force, told ITV's Calendar News: "When the Ripper was really active, one of the suspects put forward by the public was, in fact, Jimmy Savile. Obviously, it was not he, but he was interviewed along with many others." Peter Sutcliffe was convicted of murdering 13 women in 1981 and was ...
