The director-general of the National Crime Agency, who is heading a new police investigation into abuse in children's homes in North Wales in the 1970s and 1980s, is expected to meet with North Wales Police today.

Earlier this week, Chief Constable Mark Polin invited Keith Bristow to review the historic police investigations and to investigate any fresh allegations reported to the police into the alleged historic abuse in North Wales care homes.
