A&E visits surge due to icy pavements

Hospital Accident and Emergency departments were stretched yesterday due to patients seeking emergency treatment after falling on icy streets.

An average of over 30 people per hour attended the Northern General Hospital for A&E treatment yesterday morning. Rotherham and Barnsley Hospitals each said that they too had seen a “major increase” in the number of patients suffering broken bones.

Again, watch your step!
