A residential care home in the village of Newton Flotman, south of Norwich, has been judged as 'good' by the Care Quality Commission (CQC) after an unannounced inspection.

The inspection report concluded that Olive House residential care home (pictured) was doing well in areas including safety, caring, leadership, and responsiveness.

The care home's manage, Lesley Eastoll, said she was delighted with the positive result.

Ms Eastoll said: 'To receive the overall score of 'good' from the CQC is fantastic news. We pride ourselves on the care and attention we give to our residents to ensure their needs are being met.'

The result follows a £250,000 refurbishment of the home, which included adding two new apartments.
