Report: Ambulance staff on strike

Staff are claiming increasing pressure is being put on Yorkshire's already stretched ambulance service.

It has emerged that over Easter a toddler had to wait more than 20 minutes for a paramedic after a serious car accident - despite it happening a five-minute walk away from the nearest hospital.

3-year-old Keiran Morrill has survived but needed 60 stitches. The news comes on the day that 450 ambulance service workers across the county went on strike out in a row over future cuts to services. Kate Walby reports.
