Six members of staff from a Lancashire care home have been arrested by police investigating allegations ranging from neglect to physical abuse.

The inquiry at the Hillcroft Nursing Home on Throstle Grove in Slyne-with-Hest near Lancaster began in May.

Police say they have been investigating complaints involving the care of patients with Alzheimer's disease.

The six people arrested include a matron - none are currently working at the home.

All were suspended before the police investigation began.
