Three people arrested over alleged ill-treatment and neglect at a West Sussex care home have been re-bailed.

Orchid View Care Home, near Crawley, was closed by its operator Southern Cross following the allegations last September.

Police said a 54-year-old woman from Godstone in Surrey and a 48-year-old man and 40-year-old woman from West Sussex would now answer bail in August.

The care home, near Crawley, was home to 11 residents with dementia.

Sussex police said they were investigating allegations relating to a small number of residents and the suspected "mis-application of medication".
