Residents are being moved out of a care home in South Shore over concerns about the standard of its service.

Twelve residents have already been moved out of the Abbeydale Nursing Home on New South Promenade.

It comes after Blackpool Council and NHS Blackpool Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) terminated their contracts with the home this week.

Of the 34 residents in the home, 28 are funded by the council or CCG.

Both the council and the CCG said they are working with the residents and their families to find them alternative accommodation.

Simon Crowther, managing director of Abbeydale Care Home, says improvements requested by Blackpool Council have been carried out and he feels the place has been turned around.
