BBC release video showing carers’ nudity and swearing in front of Deaf student at Margate Deaf College

Posted on April 6, 2016

BBC South East has obtained and has now released a shocking video showing swearing and nudity by carers at an alcohol-fuelled party at Thanet Lodge, a boarding house at Westgate College for the Deaf in Margate.

This video is released only one day after it was announced that the closure of the college by the Care Quality Commission was due to abuse of students (see our story here).

Warning – this video is not suitable for those under 18 and contains shocking images.

The video has subtitles and captions. (if you can’t see it below, it can also be viewed directly on Facebook here)
