Workington care worker denies abusing residents

A care worker has denied abusing two elderly residents at a Cumbria home.

Kimberley Walker is accused under the Mental Capacity Act of the ill treatment of the women at the Amathea Residential Home, in Workington.

Ms Walker, 24, of Newlands Lane South, Workington, denied two charges when she appeared at West Allerdale Magistrates' Court earlier.

She was granted conditional bail. The case will be heard at a crown court.
