Another two arrests have been made as police investigate a Penzance day centre of people with learning diabilities.

The man and woman are both 57 and from Hayle.

Three others questioned on suspicion of wilful neglect have been released on bail.

More than 80 people use the John Daniels centre in Penzance.

The council which runs the centre says a separate invesigation is being carried out alongside an "independent person".

In a statement County Hall said, "We will also refer this matter to the Cornwall and Isles of Scilly Safeguarding Adults Board to consider a serious case review."

Councillor Armand Toms, in charge of adult care and support, said, "Our number one priority has always been to make sure we maintain a safe service, and we have been able to do that and keep John Daniel Centre open during this investigation.

"We would like to note our appreciation of the efforts of staff, people who use the service and their families, who have all helped to keep the service going."
