Three people involved with the running of a former care home in Nottingham have been charged with gross negligence manslaughter after the death of an 86-year-old pensioner.

Ivy Atkin died on 22 November 2012, shortly after being moved from Autumn Grange Care Home in Sherwood Rise.

Sherwood Rise Ltd, the company that owned Autumn Grange, has been summonsed for corporate manslaughter.

Naseen Kiani, 53, of Whirlow Grange Drive, Sheffield, Yousaf Khan, 46, of Nelson Road, Nottingham, and Mohammed Rahamatullah Khan, 38, of Zulla Road, Nottingham, have all been accused of gross negligence manslaughter.

A female worker, Safeena Bibi, 26, of Plantation Side, Nottingham, has also been charged with Health and Safety at Work Act offences.

All four will appear before Nottingham Magistrates on 14 April.

A police investigation was already underway after concerns were raised about the standard of care provided to residents at the home.

The home closed on 5 November 2012 when the council suspended its contract.
