Relatives vow to fight plans to shut Hampshire care home

Families of elderly residents at a Hampshire care home have vowed to fight plans to close it.

The Deeside care home in Basingstoke is one of four that Hampshire County Council is considering shutting.

Bulmer House in Petersfield, Cranleigh Paddock in Lyndhurst and Nightingale Lodge in Romsey could also close.

The day centre at Cranleigh Paddock is also under threat.

The council said the homes had become unsuitable because of "narrow corridors, insufficient space for care equipment and shared toilet facilities".

A 12-week consultation has been launched on the proposals.
