A care home for autistic adults has been placed in special measures.

A report by the Care Quality Commission (CQC) rated the St Erme Campus near Truro in Cornwall as inadequate, its lowest rating.

The home operates from three separate buildings that are run by specialist autism provider Spectrum and accommodates up to 20 adults.

Among the failings were a shortage of staff, poor leadership and a staff member describing it as "filthy".
