Man charged with 19 historical child sex offences at Nottingham children’s home


A man has been charged with a string of child sex offences alleged to have taken place more than 30 years ago at a Nottingham children’s home.

Michael Robinson, 63, of Hermit Hill, Sheffield, has been charged with 19 offences, including buggery, indecent assaults, possession of images and gross indecency.

All of the charges are in relation to incidents said to have taken place between 1981 to 1983 at Hazlewood Children’s Home in Forest Fields, which is now closed.

The charges, which were brought following an investigation by officers from Nottinghamshire Police’s Operation Equinox, relate to different victims.

Operation Equinox is the force’s dedicated team investigating allegations of historical abuse of children at children’s homes and other institutions in Nottingham and Nottinghamshire.
