ARRESTS HAVE BEEN MADE (BBC news)
Following showing of last evenings Panorama Programme.

Police in Bristol have arrested four people after secret filming by BBC Panorama found a pattern of serious abuse at a residential hospital.
Winterbourne View treats people with learning disabilities and autism.
Andrew McDonnell, a leading expert in working with adults with mental disabilities, labelled some of the examples captured on film "torture".
The hospital's owners, Castlebeck, have apologised unreservedly and suspended 13 employees.
Avon and Somerset police confirmed that three men and one woman had been arrested as part of their ongoing investigation into the hospital.
During five weeks spent filming undercover, Panorama's reporter captured footage of some of the hospital's most vulnerable patients being repeatedly pinned down, slapped, dragged into showers while fully clothed, taunted and teased.

I hope some of these patients have vengeful relatives.

The longer man is on this planet, the more uncivilised he gets.

I didn't see the programme, but what you say is no surprise to me, NHS geriatric hospitals are no better.
