Three former care workers have appeared at a magistrates court charged with the ill treatment or neglect of an elderly woman in 2012.

Daniel Baynes, 24, from Bath, Janusz Salnikow, 24, from Bristol and Tomasz Gidaszewski, 29, from Nailsea, face a total of seven charges.

It is alleged they ill treated or neglected the resident at the Granary care home in Wraxall, North Somerset.

Their case was adjourned until October for a hearing at Bristol Crown Court.

The charges relate to an 87-year-old resident at the home, which specialises in dementia care.

Mr Baynes is also accused of two counts of theft.

The men did not enter any pleas at North Somerset Magistrates' Court and they were all granted bail on the condition they do not work in the care industry or with vulnerable individuals.
