Another three people have been arrested in an investigation into safeguarding concerns at a children's home.
The home at the Kisimul School in Swinderby, Lincolnshire, where Norfolk County Council placed children with special educational needs, was shut in November.
Three people were arrested at the end of November and on Thursday police confirmed a further three had been detained.
Two women, aged 34 and 53, and a man aged 27, all from Lincoln, were arrested and bailed.
Norfolk County Council said it moved three children it had placed at the school and found them alternative provision.
Ofsted rated the home as good in August this year but it then suspended its registration amid 'serious safeguarding concerns'.
The children's home is registered separately from the Kisimul School, which is rated outstanding by Ofsted.
A spokesman for the Kisimul Group said: 'It is not appropriate to comment at this stage while the police investigation is ongoing. The safety of the young people in our care is paramount and we are fully supporting the police's investigation.'
