The arrests follow an investigation into the abuse alleged to have taken place at Grafton Close Children's Home in west London.

John Stingemore, 71, was charged with eight counts of indecent assault, two of taking indecent images of a child and one count of conspiracy to commit buggery.

The men are due to appear at Westminster Magistrates' Court in September. A third man arrested in connection with Operation Fernbridge remains of police bail.

The charges relate to seven victims, all of whom were aged between nine and 15 years when the offences took place during the 70s and 80s.
