73 year old British Nurse arrested for taking her mother out of the care home

A retired nurse has been arrested for trying to take her 97-year-old mother out of a care home before lockdown. Ylenia Angeli, 73, was detained by police after forcing her way into the home and removing her mother, Tina Thornborough, who she had not hugged for nine months because of the pandemic.

In distressing footage posted online, Mrs Angeli can be seen being handcuffed and detained in the back of a police car in Market Weighton, East Yorkshire, while her frail mother looks on.
