Nine residents have died following a “devastating” outbreak of coronavirus at a care home.

Brandon House in Exmouth, Devon, had been free of Covid for 11 months prior to residents getting ill in February.

Diane Loxam, a training coordinator, said nine residents at the dementia specialist care home had died and two were “quite poorly”.

“It’s just awful, no words can express how we’re all feeling at the moment,” she said.

All residents at the home received their first dose of the vaccine in January.
