Four healthcare professionals have been arrested over allegations of mistreatment and neglect at Blackpool Victoria Hospital.

Lancashire Police said on Wednesday that a man and three women were in custody after being arrested on suspicion of administering any poison or noxious thing with the intent to injure and ill treatment or wilful neglect.

The allegations relate to the alleged mistreatment and neglect of patients on the stroke unit in November 2018, the force said.

It brings the total number of people arrested over the allegations to seven.

A woman was arrested in November and a man and woman were arrested in December as part of the investigation and were later released pending further enquiries.
