Detectives probing a suspected paedophile ring at a former council- run children's home last night charged a 39-year-old man with offences of indecent assault.

The man, understood to be a former care worker, was released on bail to appear in court next month. He was arrested at his workplace in east London on Wednesday and taken to Cardiff where police are investigating allegations of sexual and physical abuse at Taff Vale children's home which closed in 1991.

Detectives have been trying to trace and interview 400 former residents of the home as well as 100 social services staff who worked there between 1985 and 1991.
