Police have launched an inquiry into allegations of physical and sexual abuse of boys at a secure unit run by Birmingham City Council.

The Birmingham Post (12 February, p1) reported that nine separate complaints had been made by people who had attended the high-security Tennal Assessment Centre between 1977 and 1980.

Social services officers are assisting the regime at the home and last week set up a telephone hotline in an attempt to trace further alleged victims.

A spokesman for the council said he had been instructed by police not to comment on the investigation.
