An independent inquiry begins today into how a county council handled cases of abuse against the residents of two care homes.

Former staff of the two Longcare homes in Stoke Poges, Bucks, are being asked to come forward to help with the investigation.

Nursing home director Angela Rowe, 39, (left) was jailed for two and a half years in June for her part in a catalogue of abuses against residents during a 10-year "reign of terror." Senior care assistant Lorraine Field, 42, was also jailed for 15 months for ill-treating residents with learning difficulties at the two homes which were run like "army camps."
