Jersey carer was 'sexual bully'

A carer at a former children's home in Jersey was a "sexual bully" who repeatedly abused children in his care, a court has been told.

Gordon Wateridge, 78, allegedly used his job at the Haut de la Garenne home to touch teenage girls in a sexual manner, Jersey's Royal Court has heard.

He faces 19 counts of indecent assault relating to five victims between 1970 and 1974. He denies the charges.

Robert Hall reports from the Channel Islands.
