Court Cases – Woodend Assessment Centre, Wigan 

A man has been charged following an investigation into abuse at a children’s home between the 1970s and 1990s.

David Mann, aged 68, of Westhoughton, has been charged with three counts of buggery under the Sexual Offences Act 1956.

He has been bailed and is due to appear at Wigan Magistrates’ Court on October 11.

In 2015 Operation Milan was launched following a number of complaints of both sexual and physical abuse at Woodend Assessment Centre, which was a children’s home in Wigan.

The counts relate to three separate reports between 1982 and 1987 from individuals aged between 11 and 16 at the time.
