An NHS assessment and treatment unit in Oxford requires "urgent" action to make it safer, an inspection carried out by a health watchdog has found.

The Care Quality Commission (CQC) found dirty toilets, outdated equipment and broken fittings during unannounced visits to Slade House in Headington.

Patients were not "cared for in a clean, hygienic environment," it said.

Southern Health NHS Foundation Trust said it was closing the site to new admissions while it made changes.
