Scotland Yard is investigating claims of sexual abuse by staff on mentally handicapped children at a nursing home in south London.
The police said yesterday that an inquiry into the allegations had begun after a complaint by the mother of a boy aged 12 at the Monkton Street Nursing Home in Kennington.
Staff at the home, which is run by Lambeth council, are being interviewed by detectives.
Lambeth council, which is also carrying out its own investigations into the claims, said yesterday that the police were talking about attacks on at least six young people.
The boy at the centre of the allegations has a mental age of four.
But, according to his mother, he is able to speak coherently and could tell her how serious his injuries were and how they happened.
Officials from Lambeth council hope to present a report shortly to Mrs Phyllis Dunipace, head of Lambeth’s social service committee.
