The use of eight former police officers by the North Wales Abuse Tribunal to interview witnesses and collect evidence prior to hearings due to start in January has been criticised by victims of abuse who say a number of officers have been named as alleged abusers over the years. They maintain that while the former police officers have no connection with the case, they will be viewed with suspicion.

The tribunal, the biggest of its kind and chaired by Sir Ronald Waterhouse, says the former officers have been carefully vetted and have no previous connection with the investigation into the abuse of children at home across North Wales. Roger Dobson
