Thu 05/10/2017 - BBC RADIO KENT

Yesterday morning I spoke on BBC Radio Kent on the issue of CCTV, we have a very clear stance on this subject based on the evidence. I appeared with Jayne Connery who campaigns for CCTV. Whilst unaware of this at the time, Jayne Connery is sponsored by Philip Scott who runs Zest care homes as well as Care Protect CCTV. Philip Scott was the man in charge of Southern Cross and Priory care homes, many of which are featured in our care home reports, Tales of the Un-inspected as well as numerous Private Eye articles.
