Nottinghamshire Fire and Rescue have hit back at claims that red tape is impacting on the lives of dementia suffers, stating that they are applying legislation for the safety of vulnerable residents.

The service said that both Maun View and Clipstone Hall had breached regulations and advice issued by Dementia experts on providing stimulating environments without putting residents at risk.

They also denied they were targeting care homes in the Mansfield area and said it was ‘pure coincidence’ that two homes so close together had both had enforcement action taken against them.
