Watch The Panorama Broadcast At The End Of The Story!

New allegations of child abuse in Jersey are being made as police continue their investigations at Haute de la Garenne.
Panorama has uncovered a number of alleged abuse cases at another home on the island and tracked down one of the abusers – believed by the police to be dead – but in reality very much alive and living in France.
When Haute de la Garenne was closed in 1986 the children were transferred to smaller units – one such unit was Blanche Pierre run by Jane and Alan Maguire, who for ten years opened their doors to troubled, lonely or vulnerable children.
Brutal regime
Panorama has spoken to seven former residents of the home who all recall abuse. All tell similar stories of being trapped in a brutal regime of physical and mental torture.
Former resident Jean Michel recalled: “Me and my sister would always argue over petty little things you know, end up in little squabbles from it, therefore you just sort of had a little sharp tongue, we’d have soap rammed down our throat for it…”
“It would be grated all along the back of your teeth and his nails would be all against the top of the roof of your mouth.”
Severe pain
Another former resident of Blanche Pierre, Darren said: “They put Dettol in my mouth and swilled it round and it went down my throat and it burnt my throat.
“I could hardly breathe, I was in severe pain, I was screaming because my throat swelled up, I could not breathe and I was burning because it’s undiluted Dettol in my mouth and my throat.
“(They) didn’t even take me to the doctors or anything. I couldn’t breathe properly, I couldn’t eat properly, I couldn’t talk properly and it hurt.”
A neighbour of the Maguire’s recalled some of the treatment given out to the children.
Joyce Symons said: “Darren an older child was put in the corner of the playroom and he was left there to stand sometimes all day in the corner and I would be by my kitchen and the window, my kitchen window looks into the playroom and he’d be stood there crying, a beautiful looking child and it used to make me cry and he used to be hit by what I thought was a stick.”
She said: “Alan Maguire was the one who inflicted the punishment and Jane Maguire would just sit by and let it happen.”

Watch The BBC News Broadcast At The End Of The Story!

A teenage mother has been reunited with her baby after the child was taken by social services without a court order. The boy was taken two hours after he was born to the 18-year-old, who had just left the care of Nottingham social services.
Hours later, Mr Justice Munby at the High Court said no baby could be removed “as the result of a decision taken by officials in some room”.
The woman’s solicitor Stuart Luke said she would lodge a claim for damages.
‘Birth plan’
He said she faced the prospect of “an application by the local authority social services for an interim care order, which will be vigorously contested”.
Mr Justice Munby said that without the appropriate order and given that the mother was still in hospital, mother and child should be reunited.
Describing the situation as “most unfortunate”, he said officials involved in the case “should have known better”.
The boy was born healthy and taken from his mother about two hours after his birth without an order having been made.
Mr Luke, from the firm Bhatia Best, said: “Mother and child were reunited 46 minutes after Mr Justice Munby’s order at 1209 (GMT).”
Hospital staff were apparently shown a “birth plan” prepared by local authority social services.
‘Unfortunate removal’
The plan said the mother, who had a troubled childhood and suffered from mental health problems, was to be separated from the child, and no contact allowed without supervision by social workers.
The judge said the removal of a child could only be lawful if a police constable was taking action to protect a child, or there was a court order in place.
Mr Luke said the mother would be making a claim for damages against social services officials “arising out of the unfortunate removal of her child without lawful authority shortly after his birth”.
The judge ordered the council to prepare a comprehensive plan setting out their proposals to assist the mother as she had recently left local authority care, by no later than 8 February 2008.
