A 61-year-old man has been arrested in Chester by detectives investigating allegations of a historic paedophile ring in North Wales care homes.
Officers attached to Operation Pallial arrested the man in today on suspicion of a number of serious sexual assaults.
The assaults are alleged to have been carried out on a boy between 1982 and 1985, when he was aged between 12 and 15, a spokesman for the Serious Organised Crime Agency said.
Today's arrest is the fourth made as part of Operation Pallial, an investigation led by Keith Bristow, director general of the National Crime Agency, into recent allegations of historical abuse in the care system in North Wales.
