A nursing home care worker has made his first appearance at court accused of stealing from an elderly male resident.

The offence is alleged to have taken place at the Abbeydale nursing home, Blackpool, on December 20. Prosecutor, Pam Smith, asked for Fofana to be remanded in custody for further police inquiries.

Defence lawyer, John McLaren, did not ask for bail for his client. Fofana was remanded in custody for a day by Blackpool magistrates.
