    INQUIRY SET UP OVER GAOLED WORKER (Community Care, 16th May 1985)

    A Lincolnshire social worker has been gaoled for three years for committing acts of gross indecency with boys in his care.
    Robert Russell had been in charge of Ivo Cottage community home. He was suspended and dismissed in December 1984. Lincoln Crown Court was told that Mr Russell, (38), had been the victim of similar abuse as a child.
    Lincolnshire County Council said an inquiry into the matter had been set up and a report will go to the first social services committee meeting under the newly-elected council.
