A further arrest has been made by police investigating abuse at Nottinghamshire children's homes.

It relates to incidents at the former Bracken House Children's Home in Bulwell, between 1991 and 1996.

The 49-year-old man has been bailed pending further enquiries.

Nottinghamshire Police launched Operation Daybreak in 2010, which is examining allegations relating to children's homes in Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire from the 1960s to 2000.

It was originally set up to investigate allegations reported to have taken place at the former Beechwood Children's Home in Mapperley but was expanded as further witnesses came forward.

Twelve men have been arrested by officers working on the operation but police have now confirmed two of these, including one man who has since died, do not relate to abuse in care homes.

Seven of those arrested are facing no further action, while the others have been bailed.
