    St Aidan’s care home, Widnes.

    “TWO men who say their adult lives have been terribly blighted by the childhood sexual abuse they endured at a Roman Catholic care home in Widnes have had their compensation hopes boosted by a court ruling.

    However, another man who claims he was sexually abused as a youngster at St Aidan’s care home, has lost his chance of a damages payout after the nation’s most senior civil judge – the Master of the Rolls, Lord Clarke – ruled he had launched his claim too late.

    The trio, all in their 50s but who cannot be identified because of the nature of their claim, are spearheading a bid for compensation by more than 50 people who say they were abused at St Aidan’s, or at its sister institution, St Vincent’s, in Formby.

    The homes operated between 1959 and 1987 and were run by the Nugent Care Society, a Roman Catholic organisation which looked after troubled teenagers”.
