Winterbourne View: man from Middlesbrough jailed

A nurse from Middlesbrough has been jailed for six months for neglect relating to patients at the Winterbourne View Care Home near Bristol.

Six of the 11 care workers who admitted a total of 36 charges of neglect or abuse of patients have been jailed.

Nurse Kelvin Fore, 33, from Middlesbrough, was jailed for six months for wilfully neglecting patients. Ringleader Wayne Rogers, 32, who admitted nine counts of ill-treating patients, was jailed for two years.

The abuse was uncovered by a BBC Panorama programme.

Judge Neil Ford QC said there was a "culture of cruelty" at the care home.
