A Manchester man has spoke out about the abuse he suffered at a Manchester City Council ran childrens home. Broome House is one of 3 care homes under investigation into claims of child abuse by Jimmy Savile. The man who wishes to remain anonymous claims that bosses at the Manchester care home introduced him to Savile when he was just 13 years old.
A leading abuse solicitor from Simpson Millar, Peter Garsden, is leading a group action against Manchester City Council for victims of abuse. This is the second group action and 452 claimants have joined the group. So far 275 cases have been settled with payouts totalling £2m. Recently the High Court has imposed a deadline of 7th May whereby any new claimants will need to come forward.
Speaking about this latest investigation into alleged abuse by Jimmy Savile, Peter Garsden said: “we want the cut off date put back so there can be a proper and thorough investigation into anyboyd who had any contact. At least one person was abused by him and it is more than possible countless others were as well.”
