Blackpool nursery sex abuse fears

June 24, 2009

A NURSERY school worker accused of abusing children has worked at a number of creches in Blackpool, we can reveal.

Jon Lee Fraser, 21, appeared before resort magistrates yesterday charged with sexually assaulting a boy and girl, both aged seven.

The offences are alleged to have taken place on February 19 and March 3 at the nursery in Blackpool where Fraser, of Erdington Road, worked.

The Gazette has chosen not to name the creche the allegations relate to in order to protect the identities of the children involved.

However, police today confirmed they were now speaking to managers at other nurseries in the resort where Fraser is known to have worked.

A Lancashire Police spokeswoman said: “It is true Mr Fraser has worked for very short periods of time as a nursery worker at a number of other nurseries.

“We are working closely with the managers of those nurseries and the relevant local authorities.

“At this stage there is no information to suggest any further alleged offences, or that at any time he was left by the resident staff on his own with the children in a situation where any other offences could have been committed.”

The spokeswoman added: “If any parent is worried about their children then utilise the advice and guidance on the Child Exploitation and Online Protection (CEOP) website www. or the advice from the NSPCC.”
