Another woman has been questioned by police investigating the deaths of 12 people at nine care homes in and around Horsham all run by the same company.

Police say that a 57-year-old woman from West Sussex attended a voluntary interview under caution for gross negligence manslaughter on Friday in connection with the investigation into deaths at the care homes run by Sussex Health Care.

The woman is the third to be questioned. A police spokesman said the investigation is continuing.
