A Scottish couple have appeared in Jersey Magistrates Court charged with a series of assaults at a children's home on the island.

Anthony and Morag Jordan, both 62, face 46 charges relating to 14 children at the Haut de la Garenne home.

The couple, from Kirriemuir, Angus, were released on conditional bail. They will reappear before Jersey magistrates on 26 March.

Several people have already been charged during the investigation.

Mrs Jordan began working at Haut de la Garenne in 1970 and Mr Jordan in 1978. Both left in 1984.

They were arrested in Scotland and flown to Jersey where they faced the charges during a five-minute hearing.
