The investigation into the deaths of five residents of a former Northampton care home is to be reopened by Northamptonshire Police.

Five pensioners at Parkside Nursing Home in St Matthew’s Parade died between July and August in 2009.

At the time of their deaths, the coroner ruled they died from natural causes as there was no evidence to suggest that neglect was a direct cause of death. The Chronicle & Echo campaigned at the time for the ruling to be reversed to allow a police investigation to take place. The ruling by the coroner meant that a police inquiry could not be set up.
