Orchard Lodge Children’s Home

Orchard Lodge Children’s Home

Although run by Southwark Council, we understand that Orchard Lodge was located in Anerley in the London Borough of Bromley.

Daniel Swales, 36, who worked at the Orchard Lodge Children’s Home run by Southwark Council in South London, has been missing since police began receiving complaints, the spokesman said.

The allegations concern boys aged 6-13 who joined soccer teams Mr Swales organised in the South-East London League.

Mr Swales had worked at the home for the past two years as a child-care officer.

A team of 10 detectives is investigating, and inquiries are being made in the Manchester and Blackpool areas.

Bachelor Daniel Swales kept the sordid secret of his past hidden from council bosses when he applied for the job.  Now detectives are trying to track him down after at least 20 pupils claimed he assaulted them.
