More abuse victims get in touch
Jersey police have said about 60 people have contacted them since they announced officers were investigating possible cases of abuse.

The force has appealed for people to come forward to help with its investigation into sexual and physical abuse of children dating back 40 years.

The allegations relate to the abuse of boys and girls, aged between 11 and 15.

So far 33 people have called the police and 20 have phoned the UK children's charity the NSPCC.

Meanwhile other victims and witnesses have got in contact via letter or e-mail.

The police have set up a special department and have asked the NSPCC in the UK to help.

From next week, more staff will be working with the enquiry team including an analyst from Merseyside police whose role will be to examine all the information received.
