More details emerge about the investigation into a Penzance centre for adults with learning disabilities.

Police are trying to work out whether there were any criminal offences at the John Daniel.

Staff were suspended back in December, amid allegations over care.

Devon and Cornwall Police and Cornwall Council have released this joint statement:

In December 2011, concerns were raised for the safeguarding of service users at the John Daniel Centre, a day service for adults with learning disabilities in Penzance.

As a result, a multi-agency investigation was launched, involving Cornwall Council and Devon and Cornwall Police.

The centre remains open, with support from other staff across the service. We appreciate this is a worrying time for all concerned and everyone involved understands the importance of moving things forward as quickly as possible. We remain in close contact with service users and their families.

However, it is right and proper that a full multi-agency, safeguarding enquiry take place, and that the police conducts a thorough investigation to ascertain whether criminal offences have been committed or not.

In accordance with normal management procedures, a number of staff were suspended pending the outcome of the investigation. This does not presume any allegation is proven or that any suspended member of staff is involved; it simply allows for a thorough and fair investigation to take place.

Police and Cornwall Council will continue to work in partnership throughout this process.
