An explosive report into sexual abuse and ‘widespread corruption’ at a Croydon children’s home includes the names of 27 people abuse survivors claim are paedophiles.

Shirley Oaks Survivors Association (SOSA) published the report today following its two-year-long investigation into child abuse inside south London’s care system.

Testimonies of more than 400 residents of children’s homes have been included in the findings, which were shared today at a conference in central London.

Staff at the Shirley Oaks home, doctors, teachers, vicars and football coaches have all been named in the report.

The report claims at least 60 paedophiles operated in the Wickham Road children’s home, and 27 alleged abusers have now been named.
