Two more men will appear in court over allegations of abuse of young men at the former Medomsley Detention Centre.
The men, who are both former members of staff, are due to appear at Newton Aycliffe Magistrates’ Court on 24 October.
Ian Nicholson, 74, is charged with misconduct in a public office, three counts of serious sexual assault and four counts of actual bodily harm.
Alexander Flavell, 86, is also charged with misconduct in a public office, indecent assault, one serious sexual assault and four charges of actual bodily harm.
Earlier this year, five former prison officers were jailed for a total of more than 18 years for abusing former inmates at the centre following three separate crown court trails. Three are pictured below. All five have since appealed against their convictions. These are ongoing.
Since Operation Seabrook was launched by Durham Constabulary in August 2013, 1,884 men have come forward to report allegations of abuse while detained at the centre.
