Peter Jaconelli, Scarborough

Today I got a phone call from North Yorkshire police regarding an investigation they ran 7 years ago into Peter Jaconelli and associates in Scarborough, and further afield.

They are running a review on all the evidence they have to make sure they haven't missed anything. That all child abusers are brought to justice.

Anyone with information, this is your last chance.

Operation Aluminium.

Mickey Summers

 It is with a heavy heart I return once more to tell you Mickey Summers has passed away.

A true, brave warrior who fought to expose the abuses not only in his own life, but those of others. He will be truly missed.

Many of you will know him from the Beechwood and Nottingham campaigns, but he also suffered and fought in Wakefield. He joined us in the fight in Halifax in 2015.

BBC Tribute

A man who was a key campaigner in the fight to expose historical child abuse in Nottingham has died.

Mickey Summers was a victim of child sexual abuse while in the care of Nottinghamshire County Council.

His friends and sister have paid tribute to a "fighter" and "inspirational" man.

Fellow campaigner David Hollas, 61, from Cotgrave said: "He gave inspiration and hope to others - if he could fight, they could also fight."

His sister Debbie Bloud said his death was "devastating" for her and their other sister.

She said: "I am very very proud of him" and described his campaigning as, "second to none".

"He is leaving behind a legacy as far as I am concerned," she said.

Nottingham Coroners' Court said a post-mortem examination will be carried out to establish Mr Summers' cause of death after he was found at his Clifton home on Saturday.

It added the circumstances were not suspicious.

Survivors "Let Down"

A report into child sexual abuse from the Children’s Commissioner’s Office (CCO) has criticised the speed of decision-making in child abuse cases.

Children’s Commissioner Anne Longfield said children are “being let down by the system” and are “waiting too long to see their abusers charged or jailed”.

The Investigating Child Sexual Abuse (CSA) report, published on Thursday (April 20), examined the timescales involved in CSA cases from the point of initial report to the outcome in court.

Using Home Office data from 18 forces in England, the CCO found the investigative process took an average of 248 days, compared to 236 in 2014/15 and 179 in 2013/14.

The report also highlighted that this is 101 days more than the average for adult sexual offences.

Furthermore, the average length of time for the investigation of historic CSA is 270 days, compared to 207 for a current offence.

Three recommendations were set out in the CCO report including the establishment and roll-out of ‘children’s houses’, otherwise known as the ‘Barnahus Model’.
