Additional Arrests In the Jersey Abuse Scandal

Arrest numbers five and six have been made in the ongoing abuse scandal investigation.

A 69-year-old woman and a 70-year-old man have been arrested over claims of abuse of children in care on Jersey.

The pair is being questioned over allegations of assaults said to have taken place in the 1960s and 70s.

The arrests are linked to the Jersey abuse investigation, but are not tied directly to Haut de la Garenne.

As in the last arrest of the former Jersey police officer - additional details will not be released unless the persons concerned are charged.

IIRC, this sounds like the couple that were profiled in the Panorama documentary a while back.

My first thought also!

Alan and Jane Mcguire's alleged crimes happened in the 80's - 90s time-frame.

Unless these are new crimes, these are two totally different people.
