Exclusive: UK abuse victim charity calls for Westminster to investigate Jersey

ITV News can reveal a UK charity which represents victims of historical abuse is calling on the Home Office to widen the remit of its abuse inquiry.

It will investigate what public bodies and institutions in England and Wales knew about abuse in the past.

NAPAC says, though Jersey's own inquiry has been running since the summer, what's happening in the UK should also include the Channel Islands.

Peter Saunders, Chief Executive of NAPAC, said: "Victims, survivors, who are coming to NAPAC are saying at last, are we going to get a voice? So I've spoken to people from the Channel Islands who are distraught that their voice may not get a hearing in what's being billed as this really important investigation."
