A report into claims of child abuse at children's homes across North Wales during the 1970s and 1980s has been published after 17 years.

The Jillings Report, which focused on allegations of abuse within the North Wales council care system, was compiled in 1996 but later shelved.

Today a redacted report published in the wake of fresh investigations said: 'Our investigations have led us to conclude that the abuse of children and young people in Clwyd residential units has been extensive, and has taken place over a substantial number of years.'
