The Police Service of Northern Ireland (PSNI) has so far passed 18 files relating to allegations of historical child sexual abuse in Co Fermanagh to the Public Protection Service (PPS), The Sunday Independent can reveal.

Detectives say they are investigating 58 separate cases of alleged sexual abuse against 49 victims over many decades after the mostly unrelated claims emerged three years ago.
