    Most of these homes cater to the elderly, aged 65 and older and most of the crimes reported were physical sex assaults, including several alleged rapes.

    • Over 2000 reported sex crimes in UK care homes

    • There are over 450 nursing and residential homes in Northern Ireland catering for up to 16,000 elderly people
