Care home locked children in "time-out room"

The Board of Health and Welfare has reported a youth care home in Småland province to the police. In an unannounced visit, the board found that children who were being aggressive were locked in a "time-out room", and that staff held children and forced them to lie on the floor, reports news agency TT.

The youth home, Oasen, has said it will stop using the room as punishment for aggressive children for the time being.

"The story that's being told has partly been faked by somebody who wants to harm us," said Rune Nensén, owner of the home, who spoke to Swedish Television.

He added that children are only kept in the room for minutes at a time before being let out.
