A MOTHER whose late daughter was allegedly raped in accommodation sourced by social services has called for police checks on where vulnerable young people are placed.

Lisa Arthurs told Sunday Life her beloved child Gabrielle Connolly was subjected to a serious sexual assault in October last year.

But the Belfast Health and Social Care Trust were content for the then 17-year-old to be placed back in the same accommodation where the attack happened.
