Hayling Island care home investigation: Three women arrested

Three women have been arrested as part of a police investigation into neglect at a Hampshire care home.

Hampshire Constabulary said the arrests concerned the welfare of a resident at the Pear Tree Lodge on Hayling Island.

The women, aged 55, 31 and 25, from Hampshire, were questioned on "suspicion of wilful neglect and conspiracy to make false reports".

They have been released on police bail until 27 February pending further inquiries.

A force spokesman said it would keep families and staff at the home informed of developments.
