Orchard Care fined £680,000 by Leeds Crown Court after a resident suffered life changing injuries after falling 30 feet from a window at Lofthouse Grange and Lodge in West Yorkshire.

Judge Geoffrey Marson QC described safety measures at the home as “wholly inadequate”, adding the provider had been issued with specific instructions months before the incident over inadequate window restraints.
