Kesgrave: Arrests Over Historic Sex Offences

Two men have been arrested over allegations of sexual abuse at a boarding school in Suffolk between the 1970s and the 1990s.

A 62-year-old man from Barnsley, South Yorkshire, was arrested on Wednesday on suspicion of indecent assault at Kesgrave Hall school.

He was taken to Barnsley police station and was later released on police bail while investigation continues, Suffolk Police said.

This man was also interviewed by officers from Operation Pallial, an investigation into recent allegations of historical abuse in the care system in North Wales, which is being conducted by the National Crime Agency at the request of North Wales Police.

The man was questioned in relation to two allegations of indecent assault, believed to have taken in place in North Wales in 1976 against a boy then aged 13 or 14.

A 65-year-old man from the Pontefract area was arrested on suspicion of buggery and indecent assault on Thursday in connection with the Kesgrave Hall investigation, the force added.

He was also taken to Barnsley police station and was released on police bail.

A Suffolk Police spokesman said: "Officers continue the investigation and to date have spoken to around 22 people who attended the school at the time."
