More than 200 people have come forward with information about alleged historical abuse at care homes in north Wales, police have said.

Operation Pallial, led by the National Crime Agency, was launched a year ago to look at allegations relating to 18 care homes between 1963 and 1992.

Since November 2012, 235 people have contacted police and 204 are willing to support the investigation.

Fourteen people have been arrested to date and one person has been charged.
