Former Lambeth care home worker charged with child abuse

A 63-year-old former care worker has been charged with 15 sexual offences against boys under the age of 16 in the 1970s and 80s.

Leslie Paul, of Islington, north London, is accused of indecent assault, gross indecency, possessing an indecent image of a child and one offence of a serious sexual nature.

The offences are alleged to have taken place between 1979 and 1983.

Mr Paul was arrested on 13 March last year as part of Operation Trinity.

It started in November 2012 and aims to investigate allegations of abuse within the borough of Lambeth prior to 1998.
