Theresa May vows co-operation with Kincora inquiry

Belfast Telegraph


Home Secretary Theresa May has vowed the Security Service will co-operate fully with an investigation into a paedophile ring at the Kincora Boys’ Home in east Belfast.

Ms May added she will be monitoring the case and will bring it into a powerful UK-wide inquiry with additional powers if necessary.

Scores of young boys were abused during their time at the children’s home in the early 1970s.

There was disappointment last week when it was announced Kincora will not be included in a UK-wide Government investigation of historical child abuse.

In a letter to First Minister Peter Robinson, Ms May said she was “determined that everything possible is done to uncover the truth about what happened and that appropriate action is taken”.
