Chester man says his CSA claims were ignored for more than a decade

December 3, 2014 - Chester Chronicle 

Des Frost was the former business manager of Bryn Alyn Care Home.

Mr Frost, 75, who has lived in Chester since 1960, recalled: “I spoke to two CID officers who came out to see me at home. I told them who I was and where I worked and about the allegations and asked if they would pass the information on to Wrexham police. I didn’t think they were that interested because it wasn’t on their patch but I assumed they would pass on the information. It was pretty serious even in those days.”

He added: “I didn’t hear anything but presumed they were doing undercover work and at some stage somebody would come and speak to me but nobody ever did. Thirty years ago there was an implicit trust in the police and, naively, even though they never came back to me, I assumed they had done something.

“Most of the offences took place between 1975 and 1985, there were some more later on into the 90s, so certainly he could have been stopped from perpetrating a number of these offences.”

In hindsight, Mr Frost, a married father of four, wishes he had done more to raise the alarm, but commented: “I didn’t have the benefit of hindsight.”
