The Birmingham Post (p6) reports comments of Northumberland CC leader Ian Swithenbank comments on 'pindown' allegations in a council-run children's home in Bedlington.

'Serious allegations were made by former residents of the home and we asked for an investigation to be carried out by an external body,' he said.

'If things have happened in the past that are wrong then Iwant them out in the open and prosecutions should follow if staff have done things that are criminal.'
