Allegations a decision to close all council-run care homes has contributed to the deaths of three residents were made at a heated meeting.

Sprotborough ward councillor Jonathan Wood said the deaths had occurred since the decision to close the seven remaining council-run care homes was made public.

He said: “Moving is the most stressful thing anyone can do, let alone people in their twilight years. It stresses people out to the extent people pass away – it kills them. Three people died while this has been going on and we’ve never got to the bottom of whether this was from stress.”
