A health watchdog has raised "significant concerns" over a care home in Peterborough.

Inspectors from the Care Quality Commission said some residents at Werrington Lodge had been left in beds that were wet with urine.

They also said the home was unclean and staff showed a lack of compassion.

Barchester Healthcare, which runs the home, said improvements had been made since the inspections in May and June.

"To be honest, our inspectors were shocked with what they found.

They found significant concerns in all of the areas we looked at and identified a number of very significant worries."
