"Our priority is supporting families who use the service".

The pledge as Cornwall Council investigates a centre for disabled adults.

Some workers have been suspended at the John Daniel in Penzance.

It cares for around eighty-five people.

Nick Fripp's the lead at countie hall.

He's drafted in extra staff: "I really understand this is a very worrying time for all the people involved. We've acted very quickly to make sure there's no risk to anyone involved. We have suspended a number of staff, which both protects all concerned and allows us to investigate in a thorough way."

Officials have set up a helpline for anyone who thinks they might be affected. It's 01208 251300.

You can listen to full statement from the council below.
