The inquiry into historical child sex abuse at care homes in Nottinghamshire, is to open its public hearings in Nottingham.

The Independent Inquiry will examine the extent to which councils in Nottinghamshire failed children in their care.

The inquiry is proposing four case studies including Beechwood Children’s Home, abuse of children in foster care, peer on peer sexual abuse, and institutional response to abuse at Wollaton House Community Home.

The inquiry is due to take place in October over a 3-week period.
