Patients at a mental health unit have told the BBC they were pinned to the floor in agony and bullied on wards where illegal drugs were rife. Former patients at the Carseview Centre in Dundee claimed staff had used face-down restraint violently and repeatedly over the past five years. They said the practice was used for prolonged periods and patients were also mocked and shouted at by staff.
NHS Tayside said it would investigate the claims in full and "will act". The allegations have led to calls for the unit to be closed down.
