Staff at an under-fire mental health trust say they are concerned for the safety of their patients.

It has been a difficult couple of years for the Norfolk and Suffolk NHS Foundation Trust as it tries to save £40 million.

Less than a week before a new Chief Executive takes over a campaign against the changes is gathering pace.

Patients and staff are speaking out about a lack of beds and a service not able to look after those who need it most.

Andrew Hopkins, Acting Chief Executive of the Norfolk and Suffolk NHS Foundation Trust speaks to Jonathan Wills.
