Carehome arrest after broadcast

A WOMAN has been arrested on suspicion of assaulting a resident at a carehome that was the subject of an undercover investigation by the BBC's Panorama.

The woman, in her 40s, was released on Friday pending further inquiries by detectives probing abuse at the Old Deanery Care Home in Braintree, Essex.

Anglia Retirement Homes sacked seven staff at the home after Panorama this week showed an elderly woman with dementia being slapped by a worker.
