Cumbria police investigating historic sex offences in schools

CUMBRIA police detectives are investigating historic abuse at schools in the county.

Allegations of historic abuse at a number of schools in the South Lakes area have been reported to police who have confirmed an in-depth investigation is under way.

Detectives have refused to disclose which schools are involved in the investigation.

A police spokesman said: “We are still assessing the information we have to establish any links, although a number of different establishments are involved.”

DCI Doug Marshall for the Public Protection Unit said: “Historical child abuse cases have been highlighted in the media in recent months, and as a result we have seen a rise in the number of incidents that are being reported to us that took place a number of years ago.

“We are committed to prosecuting anyone who is found to have been abusing and exploiting children or young people.

“It is never too late to report abuse, and all reports will be dealt with professionally and sensitively.”

Anyone who has any concerns, or would like to report sexual abuse, should call Cumbria Police on 101 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
