First published in News by , Reporter

A third woman has today been arrested in connection with an assault at a Braintree care home after detectives examined the contents of a BBC Panorama programme.

The documentary, which was broadcast on April 30, highlighted the treatment of residents inside the Old Deanery Care Home, in Deanery Hill.

Today officers arrested a woman in her 50s at her home in the Braintree area on suspicion of assaulting a resident at the care home, before being released on police bail until the end of July pending further enquiries.

Earlier this month, two women aged in their 30s and 40s were arrested at their Braintree homes on suspicion of assault. They are also on police bail until the end of July pending further enquiries.

Just imagine having your parents knocked about by carefree uncaring individuals. Having them left to sit in their urine all day and feces, I worked in the NHS back in the early 80's and went to care homes. I was not impressed.
I nursed my father for 15 years, God bless him lovely man, he was high dependency it nearly killed me. He died in my arms after a massive heart attack, it is an awful moment and has left a permanent scar on me. When I see reports like this in the press it does bring a tear to my eye. Well done Essex Police.
