Police, Army and council officials are investigating claims that recruits were whipped and tied up as part of a catalogue of abuse.

It’s claimed cadets – aged between 15 and 17 – were struck with elastic cords, forced to walk across rubble on their bare knees and had water poured over them.

Disturbing photos have emerged which allegedly show one a female recruit with extensive bruising to her legs caused by her being repeatedly struck with a bungee cord.

The probe centres on the Merseyside Army Cadet Force (MACF), based in Altcar, near Formby, Merseyside.
