​Both Jimmy Savile and Wilfred Krichefski have been named in the latest evidence about Haut de la Garenne. Savile visited the home in 1969. In evidence presented by Counsel Paul Livingston, two witnesses gave accounts of being abused by former Jersey Senator Krichefski when they were boys.

Another statement referred to David Moorehead, later convicted of breaking into Haut de la Garenne and leaving with a boy. The witness, who was 14 at the time of the incident, also gave details of cellars, shackles and parties at the home.

12 witness statements were read out to the Panel and the public today. Each was accompanied by supporting documents from different agencies responsible for the children's care, including social services.

The hearings will continue next Tuesday 9 December with evidence about Gordon Wateridge, who worked at Haut de la Garenne in the 1970's and was later jailed for a series of indecent assaults of teenagers.
