5 more arrests over alleged abuse – Winterbourne care home

Police investigating alleged serious abuse at a care home near Bristol after undercover filming by BBC Panorama have arrested five more people.

The programme alleged serious abuse was carried out at Winterbourne View Hospital – a private care home for people with learning disabilities.

Police arrested two women, aged 22 and 21, and three men, aged 58, 40 and 28.

Last week, a woman and three men were arrested. All nine have been released on police bail pending more inquiries.

The programme showed some of the hospital’s most vulnerable patients being repeatedly pinned down, slapped, dragged into showers while fully clothed, taunted and teased.
