Children at UK hospital given ‘truth’ drug, stripped and abused for decades

North of England Correspondent

Shocking details of abuse at a hospital in Derbyshire, which started just after the war and continued to the 1970s, have come to light today. A police report has found that 65 children were allegedly given the experimental “truth” drug, sodium amytal. They were also stripped and abused.

The allegations involve Dr Kenneth Milner, who died in 1975. We have met one of the survivors.
