Nottingham City Council's director of adult social services said 30 residents were removed from the Autumn Grange care home in Sherwood to ensure their 'safety and wellbeing'.
"We took this action to ensure the safety and wellbeing of those residents and in response to the owners of the home informing us at short notice that they intended to close the home.
"Due to serious concerns about the standard of care and the wellbeing of residents at the home, we suspended our contract with the private provider and put in a team of our own staff to manage the care of the residents over the weekend."
