The Sun reports:
Police have revealed there are more than 500 alleged victims and 248 clubs named in the football sex abuse probe.
The scandal emerged last year when a string of top footballers claimed they had been abused while at clubs’ youth systems and academies.
Police chiefs today announced Operation Hydrant, the UK-wide investigation into non-recent child sexual abuse, has now received 1,016 referrals.
This is up from 819 before Christmas.
Cops are now looking into 184 suspects, 526 potential victims, and 248 clubs.
This is an increase of 100 clubs, professional and amateur, since the last update four weeks ago.
