They remain unable to get out despite Scottish ministers saying 22 years ago that they should be living independently in the community.

 

BBC Disclosure found one person with a learning disability who had been behind locked doors in hospital for 25 years.

 

Another was cleared for release eight years ago but is still in hospital.

 

Some families said their relatives had been left to rot.

 

The Scottish government said the findings were unacceptable and that local services must do more to get people into their own homes.

 

Freedom of Information requests, made as part of the BBC Disclosure documentary, revealed that 15 Scots with learning disabilities and autism had been living for more than 20 years in hospital.

 

It also found at least 40 people in hospital for more than 10 years and 129 in hospital for more than a year.

 

In addition, nine people with autism and learning disabilities are currently in Carstairs, a high security state psychiatric hospital in South Lanarkshire, which houses some of Scotland's most serious criminal offenders.

 

None of these patients with learning disabilities were convicted of a crime before they were sent there.
