Boy molested

A bogus social worker who claimed to be investigating allegations of sexual abuse tricked his way into a woman's home at Amesbury, Wiltshire, and intimately examined her son, aged two. The crime took place three weeks ago and came to light when the woman contacted social services only to be told they had no knowledge of the visit.
