Two more people have admitted ill treating residents at a private hospital near Bristol.

The case follows secret filming by BBC's Panorama at the Castlebeck-owned Winterbourne View Hospital.

Kelvin Fore, 33, of Middlesbrough, and Neil Ferguson, 27, of Emersons Green, near Bristol, pleaded guilty to abusing the same patient in March last year.

Seven other former care workers have admitted similar charges while two more face trial at Bristol Crown Court.

Fore and Ferguson will be sentenced following the trial which will take place in the summer.

Charges were brought against the pair under the Mental Capacity Act.

Twenty-four patients were transferred from Winterbourne View near Hambrook following the BBC investigation and the home was closed last June.
