Scunthorpe MP's concern over attacks on ambulance crews.

Nic Dakin says the problem needs to be given greater priority.

Scunthorpe's MP is calling for action to help NHS staff and care workers who are attacked, sometimes by the very people they're trying to help.

Nik Dakin's worried the issue is costing the health service millions as some staff take time off after an attack.

He wants safeguards to be standardised across the country and the judicial system to hand out tougher sentences to perpetrators.
