Police have launched an investigation into multiple allegations of sexual offences at a nursery in Devon.
A male employee at the Jack and Jill Childcare nursery in Torquay was arrested on 29 July after a child alerted their parents to an alleged incident.
Since then, police have looked through more than 250 hours of CCTV footage recorded within the nursery and have now identified a number of potential victims aged between two and five.
Officers from Devon and Cornwall Police said it was a “major investigation” and added officers have contacted around 100 families of children who attended the nursery – but stressed not all are potential victims.
The nursery was closed by the education regulator Ofsted on 24 October following a number of unannounced visits carried out after the arrest.
