Golden Globe winner Morton says UK police never investigated child abuse

Golden Globe-winning actress Samantha Morton has said she was sexually abused as a child in the English city of Nottingham but authorities refused to respond to her complaints, a familiar tale as Britain grapples with a string of child abuse scandals. Morton, who was living in a council-run children's home from the late 1980s, told The Guardian newspaper that she was first befriended by two residential care workers, made to feel special by being given extra food before finally being abused.
