Oakwood School: More than 90 pupils claim abuse


More than 90 former pupils who claim they were physically and sexually abused at a Suffolk boarding school are seeking £5m in compensation.

Oakwood, in Stowmarket, a council-run school for boys with emotional and behavioural difficulties, was open from 1974 until 1999.

Suffolk County Council said it could not comment on the allegations until police inquiries had been completed.
