A programme which showed vulnerable patients being ill treated at a private hospital near Bristol has won a TV Bafta award for current affairs.

The BBC's Panorama filmed undercover at the Castlebeck-owned Winterbourne View last year.

Nine people have admitted ill treating residents. Two others will face trial at Bristol Crown Court in the summer.

The awards were held at the Royal Festival Hall in London on Sunday.

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

It has since been bought by Glenside Manor Healthcare Services who will reopen it as a neurological rehabilitation centre.
