One of the biggest Remembrance Sunday events was in Worthing where around 4,000 people gathered for a parade and service.

Andy Dickenson reports and speaks to Mayor of Maidstone, Cllr Malcolm Greer, veterans Dave Salter and Ronald Baddell, and Janet Goldsborugh-Jones of the Royal British Legion.

Pensioner with a broken neck waits on floor for paramedics for six hours

A pensioner who broke her neck after a fall at home was left lying on the floor and in pain for six hours while she waited for an ambulance.

Shirley Raycraft, who's still in hospital, is from Worthing. Because her injury was rated as a category C paramedics should have been with her within 30 minutes - instead they took twelve times longer to arrive.

South East Coast Ambulance Service, which is already in special measures, has apologised.

Andy Dickenson reports and speaks to Alan Raycraft, Baroness Angela Smith and Nigel Sweet, paramedic and UNISON steward.
