Five staff have been suspended at a day centre for adults with learning difficulties at Liskeard in Cornwall. The county council says action has been taken after concerns about the services provided for the sixty people who use the centre.
An investigation has been launched by the authority's multi-agency Safeguarding Adults team. Councillors will be told of the outcome as soon as possible. Families of those who use the centre are being kept informed and help is being offered to find alternative care facilities where needed.
