Northamptonshire County Council will have removed 19 residents of Latimer Grange Care Home in Burton Latimer by this weekend.

The council announced it was terminating its contract with the home on Wednesday.

It comes as police investigate allegations of criminal offences against current and past residents at the home.

"Due to ongoing concerns in relation to the management of the home and the home’s inability to meet the needs of residents without significant input from the council."

The council also said the Care Quality Commission supports their decision. They are working with residents and their families to relocate them in other council facilities.

There are also three private residents at the care home.
