Text:Another former creche child has come forward to claim abuse by Peter Ellis, but in this case Ellis was not even employed at the time the child was there. 22-year-old Nathan attended the Christchurch creche in late 1985, and claimed yesterday that Ellis and other staff sexually abused him during his short time there. Former creche supervisor Gaye Davidson, one of four women creche staff arrested with Ellis in 1992 on charges of abuse, said last night that Ellis did not start working at the Civic till August 1986 and had no contact at all with the creche before then. Nathan and his mother said that police told them Ellis was hanging about the creche before August 1986, but Ms Davidson and other staff said last night that was wrong.
