Two care workers have appeared in court accused of wilfully neglecting an 85-year-old nursing home resident.

Benter Ouma, 31, and Sabrina Hewitt, 39, are alleged to have failed to seek medical help for Norah Boyle.

Birmingham Magistrates' Court heard the women are accused of failing to use proper handling procedures, causing a fall, on 5 September last year.

Mrs Boyle, a resident of The Green Nursing Home, Kings Norton, died of a head injury.
