Carers arrested after allegations of neglect are bailed again
Five carers arrested on suspicion of neglect at a day centre for vulnerable adults in Cornwall have been re-bailed by police.
Three men and two women were questioned in April by detectives investigating allegations about care at the John Daniel Centre in Penzance.
The five people, a 21-year-old man from St Ives, a 58-year-old man from Penzance, a 22-year-old woman from Helston and a man and woman both aged 57 from Hayle, answered bail on Friday.
They were all re-bailed until August while detectives further inquiries and a decision on possible charges is made by the Crown Prosecution Service.
