DEMANDS FOR ANGLESEY MEMBER TO RESIGN OVER WATERHOUSE FINDINGS

Isle of Anglesey residents have called for the resignation of a county councillor who was accused in the Waterhouse report of having physically abused children during his time as the Ty'r Felin home in Bangor.

The Daily Post (25 Feb, p1) reported that John Roberts was accused of physically assaulting children who were residents at the home. Mr Robers rejected all the allegations when he gave evidence at the north Wales child abuse tribunal.

But the Waterhouse report states: 'Our firm conclusion is that Roberts did use inappropriate force and excessive physical force to some of the pupils at Ty'r Felin.'

Mr Roberts refused to comment on calls for his resignation. He said he had yet to consider the Waterhouse report in detail and any statement would be made through his solicitor.

A council spokesman said the authority was unable to comment about Mr Roberts' involvement in the tribunal's findings.
