Child victims line gets 19 calls
Nineteen people have contacted a help line set up in the wake of allegations of child abuse in Jersey.

Police have appealed for people to help with their investigation into claims of sexual and physical abuse of children dating back to the 1960s.

The investigation involves a number of island institutions and organisations.

Thirty two people have so far contacted them while 19 people have contacted a helpline of the National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children.

The NSPCC said it would normally have expected about six calls on a similar helpline for the same period of time.
