Relates to allegations made by a woman known as Miss C in her evidence to the Independent Jersey Care Inquiry that when she approached police to disclose that she had been physically abused by her alcoholic mother and knocked off a rocking horse at Brig-y-Don Children's Home in 1970s, police were more concerned about securing a prosecution against her mother or about whether she had stayed at Haut de la Garenne than her experiences as a child. Also includes comments about her experience of the care system in Jersey and reference to her being told that records relating to her time in care had likely been destroyed.
