'Difficult, protracted' investigation into care death

Due to the complex needs of those at the care home this has and continues to be an extremely difficult and protracted investigation.

From the outset we were determined to establish what happened to Ivan and who was responsible for causing his injuries and that remains as true today as it did then.

We are continuing to work closely with partner agencies in health as well as the home and I want to reassure the relatives of residents there that their welfare is, collectively between us and our partners, a top priority.
