Jane Tate Homeworkers Worldwide Flight

Two care workers have been suspended after they were pictured appearing to be asleep in the lounge while on the job.

It is believed that the women, wearing their uniforms, napped for nearly three hours while they should have been looking after elderly people and dementia sufferers.

One of the women is pictured with her feet up on a stool while the other is slumped in a chair with her head to the side.

The pair, who were working at Westroyd Care Home in Shepshed, Leics., were suspended after the image was shared on Twitter.

They were employed by Fosse Healthcare, an agency which provides nurses and healthcare assistants to hospitals and care homes in Leicestershire.

Tweets from the account which shared the image online said: 'These two lazy sods are from FosseHealthcare in Leicester.'

The page also sent a message to the Care Quality Commission's account, saying: 'May we suggest U inspect FosseHealthcare as they seem 2 be very unprofessional in their correspondence.

'These carers drain elderly funds.'

A spokesman for Four Seasons Health Care, which runs the home, said: 'When we saw the photograph we notified the Leicestershire County Council safeguarding team and the CQC and instigated a joint investigation together with the care staffing agency, which is still ongoing.

'Meanwhile the agency workers in the photograph are suspended from working in the home.

'If any carer was napping while they should be looking after elderly residents, that would be a serious disciplinary matter.

'However, it would be wrong to make assumptions and the investigation needs to establish whether the people in the photograph were meant to be on duty at that time or were on a break and whether they were actually asleep.'

A spokesman for Fosse Healthcare said: 'We were informed of a complaint against two members of Fosse's staff regarding a shift at a Four Seasons Care Home on June 26.

'As a result we have commenced a full review of the complaint, including interviewing the individuals involved.'

'As a matter of policy the two members of staff were immediately suspended from work while we complete our review.'

Leicestershire County Council, which is responsible for the care of vulnerable adults, has also been informed on the incident.

A council spokesman added: 'Clearly, this is a concern, and we are aware that the owners of the care home have taken immediate action.

'We will work closely with them and the CQC in ensuring the safety and well-being of residents, which is always our priority.'

Westroyd House Care Home is split into two sections, the House, which cares for elderly people, and the Lodge, which tends to people living with dementia.

A statement on the home's website says: ' Westroyd is a purpose-built residential home for elderly people who are physically and mentally frail.

'We are especially trained in caring for those living with dementia.

'Our unique approach is based on understanding dementia form the resident's perspective, enabling us to deliver Special Resident Experiences and consistently good care everywhere.

'Our highly trained team members specialise in palliative care and providing professional support to those living with dementia.'

Maddie: The Truth Of The Lie – Chapter 20

Chapter 20

AN IRISH FAMILY IN A STATE OF SHOCK

The McCann couple return to Great Britain after more than four months spent in the Algarve. It’s an almost triumphant return. The media coverage is such that you’d think you were witnessing the liberation of hostages held for years in a far-off country. Gerald McCann is shown on television carrying his son, as he descends from the plane. The child’s head is against Gerald’s left shoulder and his arms dangling by his sides. Gerald walks across the tarmac, still holding his son closely against himself.

In Ireland, the Smiths are watching the BBC news, which is broadcasting the event. For them, it’s a shock: that person, they recognise him. That way of carrying his child, that way of walking…It’s the man they saw at around 10pm on May 3rd, with a little girl, who seemed to be deeply asleep, in his arms.

This image, brings back with a jolt, that of the man they encountered in the streets of Vila da Luz, on the evening of Madeleine’s disappearance. It’s as if the scene is repeating itself ….Mr Smith thinking he’s hallucinating, sees the same report on other channels, ITV and Sky News. From that moment, he is sure: the man they came across that night was Gerald McCann. Of that there is very little doubt. Upset by the implications of this discovery, he alerts the police and waits to be called back by those in charge of the investigation.

When we receive this information, at the end of September, we think we finally have the piece that will allow us to complete the puzzle. Because of this, we may be able to reconstruct the course of events on that cold night of May 3rd in Vila da Luz. We have a better understanding of why Jane Tanner, “sent,” the alleged abductor in the opposite direction to that taken by the man seen by the Smith family. Suspicion had to be diverted from Gerald who – if he was the guilty party – would have taken this route: leaving apartment 5A, the individual who was carrying the child, did not go east, towards Murat’s house, but west in the direction of the beach.

We decide to get the Smiths back to the Algarve, for a formal identification of Gerry McCann – by means of televised images, certainly – direct confrontation being impossible – and possibly proceed to a reconstruction of the events of the night of May 3rd. The National Director of the Judiciary police agrees, the process is set in motion, all the details are sorted out; all that remains is to choose the hotel where they will be put up. But the Smiths were never to come back to Portugal. After my departure, the PJ were to change their minds. They asked the Irish police to proceed with interviewing the witness. That decision was to seriously delay the process since the Smiths were not interviewed until several months later. Meanwhile, rumours were to circulate and people not involved with the investigation would be made aware of the existence of this witness; someone allegedly even sought out contact with the family, without its being known to what end.
