Southern Health has been fined £125,000 for failing to provide safe care and treatment to patients.

The NHS Trust previously pleaded guilty in connection with safety concerns at Melbury Lodge in Winchester - where a patient fell from a rooftop, suffering serious neck injuries. It's the first time the Care Quality Commission has launched a prosecution against a Trust.
