Care home run with 'culture of cruelty'

The judge sentencing 11 care workers who between them admitted 38 charges of cruelty and neglect, has said the private hospital they worked at was run with a 'view to profit' and a 'culture of cruelty'.

Judge Neil Ford QC added that there was a scandalous lack of regard to the interest of patients at the Winterbourne View private hospital in Bristol, and that without the undercover work by the BBC's Panorama programme, the 'systematic abuse of people' would have otherwise continued.
