Two arrests as about 100 former pupils of Tong Park Remand Centre in Baildon claim they suffered sexually or physical abuse

TWO men have been arrested by police investigating allegations of both sexual and physical abuse against boys at a former children’s remand centre in Baildon.
Around 100 complainants have now come forward alleging they were abused as boys while at Bradford Council-run Tong Park Remand Centre in a period spanning three decades.
The Telegraph & Argus first reported in September 2015 that an investigation was taking place.
A spokesman for West Yorkshire Police has confirmed two men, both aged 77, have been arrested and bailed bail as the inquiry continues.


West Yorkshire Police has also submitted a file to the Crown Prosecution Service for consideration.
The allegations relate to dates between the 1960s and 1990s. The centre closed in 1995.
Molly Frost, a lawyer for Jordans Solicitors based in Dewsbury, who is involved in civil litigation about conditions at Tong Park Remand Centre, said: “The majority of the allegations relate to physical abuse.
“Virtually every claimant gives the same account of the harsh regime at Tong Park, excessive PE and punishments.
