Six people arrested in connection with the death of a former resident at a Nottingham care home have been bailed.

Ivy Atkin, 86, died on 22 November 2012, shortly after being moved when Autumn Grange in Sherwood Rise closed.

Three men aged 77, 44, and 37, and three women aged 52, 25, and 29, were arrested on suspicion of manslaughter.

Late on Tuesday two men, aged 56 and 64, and three women, aged 19, 20 and 28, were also released on bail over the same inquiry.

An investigation by police and other agencies into the standard of care provided to residents at Autumn Grange is also under way.

The home closed in 2012 when its council contract was suspended.

This followed a Care Quality Commission (CQC) inspection which raised concerns about fire safety and cleanliness at the home.

Plans have been submitted to turn the Autumn Grange site into flats.
