A patient with a learning disability was trailed by the scruff of her neck along the ground and paid in sweets to stroke the arm of a staff member at Muckamore Abbey Hospital, a public inquiry has been told.

The mother of the patient, identified at the Muckamore Abbey Hospital Inquiry as Amanda, told the hearing her daughter had black eyes on an almost weekly basis for years while she lived at the scandal-hit facility.
