Detectives investigating historic allegations of child abuse at North Wales care homes said the number of alleged victims and care homes involved are much higher than previously thought.
Operation Pallial, the inquiry launched last November, has received 140 allegations relating to 18 care homes between 1963 and 1992, including fresh claims by 76 new complainants, a progress report released today has shown.
North Wales Police warned offenders they should "live with the knowledge that we will always examine new information and evidence and seek to bring them to justice for their crimes".
