Yeovil care home residents all re-homed after closure
Residents of a luxury care home in Somerset which was forced to shut with just a few hours notice have been moved into new homes within 24 hours.
Tyndale House in Yeovil closed on Tuesday with staff complaining that they hadn't been paid for a month.
They have now received their wages, but residents remain angry over how the facility was suddenly shut.
Owner Carlauren said it had no option as the 18-bedroom home was under-occupied and had lost £500,000.
One of the residents, Marion Kemble has now been moved 13 miles away from Yeovil to the village of Hambridge.
Her daughter-in-law, Hayley Kemble, said: "She's very upset and very unsettled as well. She's confused, it's all a bit of a shock.
"When I left her last night she was very tearful."
Marion added: "I didn't sleep very well last night.
"I'm a bit shaky. I think it was all the upheaval from yesterday."
Ex-care home worker Leanne Towner worked at the home with her son Owen.
She said: "Me and my son, we live together, so it's two of us a in a household that have not had any pay.
"So today getting the rest of our pay was a big, big relief."
