Actress Samantha Morton has said she was sexually abused by two residential care workers while in a children’s home in Nottingham as a teenager.
Ms Morton said she reported the abuse to authorities in the 1990s but said the men had not been investigated.
She told the Guardian she had spoken out after revelations of abuse in Rotherham and amid an inquiry into allegations of abuse in Nottingham.
Nottinghamshire Police said it had no record of a complaint by Ms Morton.
The Bafta and Golden Globe winning actress, 37, has twice been nominated for an Oscar, for Sweet and Lowdown in 2000 and In America in 2004. She spent much of her childhood in care homes in Nottingham.
She told the newspaper she had been abused at the Red Tiles home, in Bulwell, Nottingham.
Nottinghamshire County Council said 13 institutions – including Red Tiles – were subject to a civil case involving the county council and Nottingham City Council.
I just wanted to go public with this, to say, we know it’s rife but why are there not further investigations into other areas?”
Ms Morton said she was 13 when she had reported the abuse, but said “there was no support, no offer of counselling, no wanting to delve deeper”.
“Maybe they just assumed I had been abused already, or was being, anyway. A lot of people who abused my friends were people in very, very top jobs within the social services.
“Nottingham in the 80s was rife with that,” she added.
She told the newspaper she was speaking out following a report that detailed the sexual abuse of 1,400 children in Rotherham over 16 years and the “blatant” collective failures to deal with the issue.
The actress called for investigations to be launched in other towns and cities.
“I just wanted to go public with this, to say, we know it’s rife but why are there not further investigations into other areas? It isn’t just Rotherham, I’m sure it’s not just Rotherham,” she told the newspaper.
We hope in the near future to speak with Samantha so that we can fully understand her concerns”
Nottinghamshire County Council
Nottinghamshire Police – which is carrying out an historic child abuse investigation into allegations going back several decades at a number of homes – said there was no record of Ms Morton ever making a complaint to the force.
Superintendent Helen Chamberlain told the Guardian she had spoken to Ms Morton about the allegations but they had not amounted to a criminal offence and the actress had not reported them as one.
Nottinghamshire County Council – which was responsible for running the home at the time – said the abuse of vulnerable children in any decade was “abhorrent”.
“We recognise how difficult it must have been for Samantha Morton to bring her concerns to the attention of the public,” said Steve Edwards, service director for children’s social care.
“We hope in the near future to speak with Samantha so that we can fully understand her concerns.
“Nottinghamshire County Council takes all allegations of abuse, whether current or historic, extremely seriously.
“To fully investigate Samantha’s concerns we are working closely with Nottinghamshire Police and Nottingham City Council.”
