Bedfordshire police reopen historic abuse inquiry into St Francis boys' home

Ex-residents of a Catholic orphanage in Bedfordshire are to be re-interviewed by police in a new review into claims of physical and sexual abuse.

In May 2013 police revealed an investigation had begun into alleged abuse at the St Francis Boys' Home in Shefford, in the 1950s and 1960s.

Ex-residents have been told there will be an evidence review under the command of senior investigator Mark Ross.

Bedfordshire Police said all previous investigations would be looked at.
