Wealthy brothers fined over “depressing, unhygienic and unsafe” care home

PA, AOL, UK News

Two wealthy brothers who ran a dangerous and dirty care home with rooms like “prison cells”, where residents were not bathed or showered for a month have been fined £80,800. Amjad and Amer Latif admitted to 14 offences after a snap inspection horrified investigators, and led to a court order to close the home, Mossley Manor, in Mossley Hill, south Liverpool. The inspectors were called in by a woman who took her mother out of the home just two hours after first arriving. Inspectors from watchdog the Care Quality Commission (CQC) gagged at the overpowering stench inside the dirty and dangerous home, which charged a minimum of £1,000 per month to look after each of its 43 residents, many funded by the taxpayer. It is not known how long residents had been forced to live in such squalor.
