Police to investigate Sutton care home after allegations of abuse

Police are investigating claims of abuse at a care home in South London, which was closed last year after failing inspections.

Detectives say they were made aware of concerns in December, about injuries to two men and a woman in their 80s and 90s, while they'd been living at Grantley Court Nursing home in Sutton.

It comes as the health watchdog - the care quality commission, and Sutton council have defended their actions, after media reports claimed there had been errors and delays in closing the home, putting patients at risk.

Sally Warren, the Deputy Chief Inspector of Adult Social Care for London at the CQC says the correct steps were taken to protect the elderly.
