Granada Reports can reveal that allegations of abuse at a former residential school for boys in South Cumbria are to be re-investigated by police. Underley Hall was a place where pupils, many of them with learning difficulties, should have been safe. According to those we’ve spoken to they weren’t. Their claims of sexual and physical abuse in the 1970s and 1980s are now being re-investigated as part of Operation Tweed.
Anyone with information is asked to contact Cumbria Police on 101 or can call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
Advice and support for adult survivors of abuse can be found on the NSPCC’s website.
