Jersey and Portsmouth and murder

1. English solicitors Dyer Burdett & Co (DBC) have set up a legal team to advise former residents of the Haut de la Garenne children's home on Jersey.

DBC is already representing 18 people who were allegedly physically and sexually abused whilst in the care of Portsmouth Corporation during the 1950s and 60s.

The firm is investigating reports of a link between the Portsmouth cases and Haut de la Garenne. (Two more 'punishment cellars' discovered at Jersey care home)

2. Police are investigating the disappearance of a young girl at Haut de la Garenne as a possible murder inquiry. An eyewitness told police the child “disappeared” after being hurt in an “act of violence” in the 1970s. (Two more 'punishment cellars' discovered at Jersey care home)
