Breaking: 8 Arrested In Newcastle Over Alleged Abuse Of Children In Care

This is Operation Sanctuary.

Temporary Assistant Chief Constable Gary Calvert is quoted as say;

 I understand that these types of allegations can cause the public concern and I want to reassure the community that police take crimes of this nature extremely seriously and will thoroughly investigate them.

Our overarching priority is to protect any victims or potential victims and to bring any offenders to justice.

I must emphasise that the suspects do not come from one community but a range of communities and it would be very wrong to speculate until we have the full facts which may take some time.

The victims include teenage girls as well as young adults.

Eight people have been arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to rape after a series of early morning raids in Newcastle.

Police officers searched eleven properties across the city after allegations of sexual abuse from several alleged victims, some of whom are in care or had been in care.

All of the complaints come from teenagers or young adults.
