Security at Scunthorpe & Grimsby hospitals now wearing cameras

Security officers at Grimsby and Scunthorpe hospitals are now wearing body cameras in the hopes it'll make people think twice before attacking NHS staff.

It also means they have video evidence to carry out prosecutions. 

Last year 156 assaults against hospital staff working at North Lincolnshire and Goole Hospitals Trust were reported.

Nearly 100 involved medical factors such as dementia, head injury or mental health issues.
