Victims tell of horror inside North Wales care home where gang rape, strip searches and vicious canings were a way of life... and Jimmy Savile was a regular visitorDailyMail.co.uk
Keith Gregory was just 11-years-old when he was taken away from his parents in the 1970s to Bryn Estyn children’s home in North Wales.
Forty years later, he has revealed the horror inside the care home where gang rape, strip searches and vicious canings were a way of life - and where Jimmy Savile was a regular visitor.
Mr Gregory claimed young boys used to lie in their beds and pretend to be asleep to avoid being taken to a flat and abused by staff and visitors - those that were taken came back sobbing.
He knew of children being driven off to a hotel where they would be gang raped and said he was beaten bloody and subjected to humiliating strip searches.
His revelations came as a man, named Ben, claimed boys at the home were molested for Savile’s ’entertainment’.
He said he was raped repeatedly by the deputy head Peter Howarth - who was later jailed for abusing boys - and he and other boys there would also have their pyjama bottoms pulled down by Howarth so predatory paedophile Savile could ogle them.
He told The Sun: ’Savile just eyed up my privates and laughed.
’He thought it was funny, entertainment. This happened to a number of boys.’
Then the Jim’ll Fix It star made Ben sit on his lap, ’then he started rubbing my leg. After that I went to bed but he had other children brought up to him’, said the victim.
