An old people’s home in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria was closed down by a court order on Thursday and the director taken into custody over allegations of abuse.

Sources quoted by Canarias 7 indicated that sexual abuse of the women who live there by the director and his brother is under investigation.

The residents were being re-housed in other centres on the island.

The residence was the subject of a television programme on the situation by the journalist Mercedes Mila some weeks ago, which showed footage shot with a hidden camera.
