was forced to move four times in the last year of his life.
Pat Maguire from Beverley says his father-in-law's condition
worsened significantly because of the moves.
A number of privately run residential homes in the area have
closed in the last year and now Mr Maguire says adult social care
More from our political reporter, Sarah Sanderson.
Pat Maguire has spoken out after he and his family chose
to find residential care in Beverley in East Yorkshire for his
But because of issues surrounding closures and suitability,
his father-in-law had to be moved four times after initially settling
While we can't ever prove it, we honestly believe that the moves
that he had to undergo affected him and made his condition worse.
Yes, they give money to local authorities
but it's the Government, through taxation, that ought to be
caring, just as we expect them to do for small children,
the young, we ought to be providing the same level of care
Funding issues have been blamed for a number of care homes
And earlier this month, Jeremy Corbyn said a Labour
Government would take failing private care homes into public
ownership in order to maintain social care protection.
But the Conservative MP for Beverley and Holderness says
The Government's absolutely committed to getting this right.
If you look on the ground in Beverley, despite the current
problems, in the next few weeks we're going to see new places coming
forward and over the next years I expect to see a much improved
situation and the Government is playing its part in doing that.
In a statement, the Department of Health says...

Plans to improve one of Hull's busiest roads have gone on display.
The proposal for the A63 includes sinking the main road into a deep
cutting to improve the flow of traffic around the city.
There'll also be a footbridge between the city centre
Because the design is sinking the road seven metres in very,
very poor ground conditions, we are quite rightly concerned
with the history of schemes that have failed in the past but we've
spent an awful lot of time with the contractors carrying out
very detailed ground investigations and that has

with no health check ups with 48 other dogs for breeding.
Designer cross breeds can earn criminals up to ?300 a time.
Healthy and friendly, these puppies were saved
Their mum, Ruby, was rescued from a puppy factory.
If they had been born there, they would have had no health checks
and the breeders would have seen them as breeding machines.
People get them and they come here and say I've got Jackahuahua

They don't see them as that, they market them as being

Now a look at the weather forecast with Keeley Donovan.
After a bitterly cold week it's set to get much less cold over
the weekend but with that some cloud and rain, much more
So through this evening and overnight, further spells
of rain and drizzle, a lot of cloud holding temperatures
up higher than they have been over the last few days,
down to two or three degrees and all of this is much milder air
which will continue to affect us through tomorrow.
Through the morning cloudy with outbreaks of rain and drizzle.
A slow improvement through tomorrow, drier conditions gradually
developing, the rain becoming more light, patchy and tending to peter

Ireland, as the rain clears away. Again, a word of warning there could
be some ice around in the morning if
