Eleanor Laws QC and Catherine Donnelly prosecuted the case of Cooke and others over three months earlier this year. The case forms part of Operation Pallial; the ongoing investigation into historic sexual and physical abuse in North Wales Children’s homes. On Friday, five men were sentenced to a total of 43 years for their part in a paedophile ring operating in and around the Wrexham area throughout the 1970s and the 1980s.

The Operation continues, in conjunction with CPS Wales and the National Crime Agency.
