A care home for adults with learning difficulties has had its council contract suspended following criticism by the Care Quality Commission.

Woodley House, in Ruddington, Nottinghamshire, provides accommodation for up to 21 people.

The commission found shortcomings in care given to aggressive residents.

Now the county council, which funds 11 places at the home, has said no new residents will be placed there until improvements are made.

A spokesman for Woodley House said: "We're clear that we have improvements to make, and have already introduced an action plan and implementing corrective actions to ensure these shortcomings are addressed quickly.

"We are ensuring that all relatives are informed and we anticipate being fully compliant within the next few days."

Jon Wilson, service director at Nottinghamshire County Council, said: "We are carrying out an individual review of all the Nottinghamshire residents at the home to ensure their needs are being met and they are not at risk of harm.

"We will also carry out regular audits to check progress and assist the home to address ongoing issues such as how residents are accommodated across the three buildings."

Eleven adult care homes in the county have so far had their contracts suspended after concerns from the council.
