Second Horror Chamber to be Opened at Haut de la Garenne

As mentioned yesterday, 3 arrests are expected shortly. Two on the island and a third in the UK.

DCO Lenny Harper said the investigation has been hampered by retired detectives attempting to cover up failings.

From the BBC: Officers have finished clearing rubble from the first cellar and are planning to start searching a second bricked-up chamber this week.

Meanwhile, the investigation appears to be going even further. The South Yorkshire police are conducting a separate investigation into decision-making within the States of Jersey force.

Internal disciplinary measures against officers who breached rules, is possible.

According to the BBC: the States of Jersey have given Mr. Harper a blank check to meet mounting financial costs of the investigation.

Some 25 people are suspected of having taken part in sexual and physical assaults at the home dating back to the 1960s.
