Over 350 ex-inmates have now come forward to help Cleveland Police with their investigations into the alleged physical and sexual assault at the Kirklevington Detention Centre in Yarm.
The boys who were teenagers at the time, allege these assaults took place at Kirklevington Detention Centre between the 1960’s and 1990’s.
A former inmate said he was regularly beaten up. The Police had arrested two men in 2016 in connection with their investigations, but they were both later released without charge. The Police investigations of the alleged abuse at Kirklevington Detention Centre are however on-going.
Jordans Solicitors already represent over a 100 victims of alleged abuse at Kirklevington Detention Centre and would encourage anyone affected to contact Jordans.
