Rochdale Council 'misled' police school abuse investigation

A retired senior detective has told the BBC he was misled when he tried to investigate a school in Rochdale at the centre of abuse allegations.

Bob Huntbach investigated people connected to Knowl View School after it closed.

He says he asked the local council for all relevant paperwork but he was never given a report detailing serious sexual abuse at the school.

Without this evidence, he says his inquiries came to nothing.

Ed Thomas reports.
