Bryn Alyn children's home 'paedophile playground' claim

A former resident of a Wrexham children's home says it was a "paedophile playground" where abuse was part of the routine of being a Bryn Alyn boy.

He was giving evidence in the trial of John Allen, who owned and ran the Bryn Alyn Community, a group of homes near Wrexham, which became one of the UK's largest providers of residential care.

He denies 40 counts of sexual abuse of children.

Matthew Richards reports.
