The first five days of a major inquiry into historical child sex abuse in Nottinghamshire will be held at Trent Bridge Cricket Ground, it has been confirmed.

The Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse (IICSA) will spend three weeks looking into the extent of the sexual abuse of children in the care of Nottingham City and Nottinghamshire County Councils.

It will also look at how institutions including those councils and the police responded to any abuse claims.

The hearing was originally due to take place in Southwark, London, but the Nottinghamshire Child Sexual Abuse Survivors Group has asked for some of the sessions to take place locally.
