We were shocked to hear about a vicious attack on a colleague from North West Ambulance Service who has been left with a fractured skull after being attacked while trying to help a patient.
Like NWAS, we will not tolerate violence against our staff. We will always ask the Courts to hand down the toughest possible sentences in cases such as this. Thankfully, attacks are still relatively rare, but even one attack is one too many.

The good news is that there was an update this afternoon that Lancashire Police have arrested a 19 year old man in connection with the incident.
