Nottinghamshire Police are investigating a sexual abuse case that happened more than 40 years ago have appealed for a potential witness to come forward.

The woman, known only by her first name, ‘Elizabeth’ was living in foster care at a house on Derby Grove in Lenton.

Police have received few other details about Elizabeth other than the fact that she would have been in her mid teens at the time.


DC Roy Greer, of Radford Road CID, said “We appreciate that much time has passed since the alleged offence took place, but it has still required enormous courage from the victim to come forward and speak to us now.

He added “We are determined to help the victim to take this case forward and it appears Elizabeth may have important information about what happened in this house more than four decades ago.

“She may no longer live in the Nottingham area, but hopefully the year and the location will help her or someone who knows her to contact us.”

Anyone who knows Elizabeth or has any more information which can assist the investigation should telephone 101 and quote incident number 374.
