A retired nurse was arrested after she removed her 97-year-old mother from a care home before lockdown began due to a lack of face-to-face contact during the pandemic.

 

She said she wanted to care for her mother, who has dementia, herself. She was returned to the home and Ms Angeli was released without further action.

 

The spokesman at Downing Street said there was not a “one-size-fits all answer unfortunately” to whether families could take their loved ones out of care homes.
