Two held in Britain for child sex abuse
London: Two suspected paedophiles, aged 66 and 70, have been arrested as police investigated a 1980s case of child sex abuse at a guest house and care home.
The men were arrested in raids at their homes in Norfolk and East Sussex, The Sun reported.
The allegations were linked to Elm Guest House and the Grafton Close care home in Barnes, southwest London.
The guest house was allegedly run as a male brothel in the early 1980s and boys from the care home are alleged to have been taken there to be used by adult men, the daily said.
A child protection campaigner said the house was raided in the 1980s by police but the evidence no longer exists.
The arrests were made after concerns were raised in the House of Commons.
Police asked people "affected by" or having information about the activity in the early 1980s to speak to the authorities.
