A group complaint to Southampton City Council over respite care cuts is the largest received by the authority in 20 years, a meeting has heard.

Southampton City Council has already said it would compensate carers for "avoidable distress" caused by the closure of Kentish Road Respite Centre.

But at a special meeting on Tuesday, campaigners demanded answers about how the decision to close the centre was taken.

The extraordinary governance meeting at the civic centre on Tuesday follows an investigation by a local government ombudsman which found families' needs had not been properly assessed.

The council said an independent review of its adult care system was under way, the Local Democracy Reporting Service reported.
