RETIRED NORTH Wales Police superintendent Gordon Anglesea has been arrested on suspicion of historic physical and sexual assaults against children.
Anglesea was detained at his Colwyn Bay home in December by officers of the National Crime Agency.
He was the 18th person to be arrested as part of Operation Pallial, based at North Wales Police headquarters.
Operation Pallial was set up by Prime Minister David Cameron in November 2012.
His decision followed the BBC Newsnight programme which falsely implied that Tory peer Lord McAlpine had abused children in North Wales care homes.
ON 12 DECEMBER officers from the National Crime Agency knocked on the door of a house in a quiet suburban street in Old Colwyn on the North Wales coast.
Inside the property they arrested a 76-year-old man and later took him to a police station in Cheshire.
The detectives were part of the Agency’s Operation Pallial team.
