Hampshire man re-bailed after being arrested over neglect

First published in News

A HAMPSHIRE man arrested on suspicion of neglect has been re-bailed as detectives continue their investigations into the treatment of an elderly woman.

The 84-year-old woman was found seriously ill at her home in Totton amid concerns of neglect and remained in a coma for several days.

She has now woken from her coma but is still recovering in hospital.

As previously reported, her condition sparked a police investigation, which saw her home in Water Lane taped off for more than 24 hours as police conducted enquiries in June.

It is understood that the woman is a widow and has an adult son.

Forensic experts were seen going into the house, close to the junction with Bishops Close, and police talked to neighbours.

A 53-year-old man who was arrested on suspicion of neglect has been rebailed until August 28.
