The Inquiry will come to Trent Bridge Cricket Ground from 1 to 5 October 2018, where the Chair, Professor Alexis Jay OBE, and panel will hear opening statements and evidence from some witnesses.

The Inquiry will spend three weeks looking into the extent of any institutional failures to protect children in the care of Nottingham City and Nottinghamshire Councils from abuse and exploitation.

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

The remaining two weeks of the hearing will take place at the Inquiry’s hearing centre in London.

Further details will be provided on the Inquiry’s website and Twitter feed @InquiryCSA
