A 52-year-old woman has been arrested by police investigating allegation of ill-treatment of patients at Muckamore Abbey Hospital.

Earlier this month, the Public Prosecution Service prosecuted seven people over alleged ill-treatment of patients at the county Antrim Hospital.

The facility, which is at the centre of an ongoing major police operation, treats patients with severe learning difficulties and mental health problems.
