A number of staff are suspended at a Cornish centre for people with learning disabilities.

The council says it has launched an investigation into the John Daniel in Penzance.

It is a centre used by around 85 vulnerable adults, once you include part time and full time users.

Their families have been sent letters explaining this investigation has been launched after allegations were made to the council.

Right now it is still up and running with new staff being brought in to keep it going.

The council says it cannot reveal any more details until the investigation is complete.

A helpline for worried families has been set up this weekend.

The number is 01208 251300
