The Secret of Bryn Estyn: The Making of a Modern Witch Hunt by Richard Webster
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


In 1991 rumours began to circulate in North Wales that Bryn Estyn, a home for adolescent boys on the outskirts of Wrexham, was the centre of a paedophile ring. A massive police investigation was launched which, over the next ten years, spread to care homes throughout Britain. Thousands were accused, hundreds arrested, and the prisons began to fill up with convicted care workers. Had we at last faced up to a horrifying reality? Or had we unleashed an entirely new kind of witch-hunt? Richard Webster has spent nine years uncovering what really happened in North Wales. The result is one of the most remarkable works of investigation ever written.
