Final suspended worker cleared of wrongdoing and back to work at under-fire Braintree care home

First published in News

A final member of staff suspended from a car home ahead of the screening of a shocking TV documentary has been cleared of any wrongdoing.

Alleged mistreatment of residents at the Old Deanery in Bocking was exposed by secret filming shown during a BBC Panorama programme, broadcast on April 30.

Eight staff were suspended in February when the BBC first contacted bosses at the home about its findings.

One care worker was dismissed ahead of the programme being aired, while a further six staff were sacked the day after it was televised.

The case of the final suspended staff member has now concluded and they have been cleared of any wrongdoing and returned to work.
