Walsall patient abuse caught on camera

Secret filming revealed a carer force feeding an elderly patient.

Julie Hamilton was filmed abusing 88-year-old dementia sufferer Winifred Stolarski at her home in Walsall last year.

Footage showed her shouting at Ms Stolarski as well as cramming food into her mouth.

Hamilton, 53, of Hunts Lane in Willenhall, was jailed for two months at Wolverhampton Crown Court on Tuesday after admitting one count of ill-treatment and wilful neglect. A second count is to lie on file.

The camera had been secretly installed by a colleague who was worried about Ms Stolarski, police said.
