Southwark LBC has sacked three members of staff at a residential home for abusing mentally handicapped young people in their care, the Times reports (p4).

The sackings were ordered after the council's enquiry into the incidents, which happened two years ago.

Local Labour MP Tessa Jowell has asked Health Secretary Virginia Bottomley to hold an independent enquiry into abuses at the home.
