A 20th suspect has been interviewed by the National Crime Agency following an investigation into recent allegations of historical abuse in the care system in North Wales.

On Wednesday 9 April, a 62-year-old man from Barnsley, South Yorkshire, was interviewed by National Crime Agency officers working on Operation Pallial.

The man was arrested by police officers from Suffolk Police. He was taken to Barnsley police station and questioned in relation to a separate investigation concerning allegations of historic offences at Kesgrave Hall boarding school ranging from the 1970s to the 1990s.

He was then questioned by Operation Pallial officers in relation to two allegations of indecent assault, believed to have taken in place in North Wales in 1976 against a boy then aged 13 or 14.

He was bailed on all matters until August 13, pending further investigations by Suffolk Police and Operation Pallial.
