A man has been charged with racially abusing a paramedic in Suffolk.
Ambulance bosses say they're supporting the staff involved in the incident in Lakenheath on Wednesday (May 16).
Leon Harris, 35, from Lakenheath, faces charges of racially aggravated harassment by words and using threatening or abusive words likely to cause harassment, alarm, or distress.
He was due to appear before Ipswich Magistrates’ Court on Friday (May 18).
It comes as the East of England Ambulance Trust continue their campaign encouraging members of the public to respect ambulance staff.
“Ambulance staff should not have to work in an environment where they fear assault or racial abuse when they are trying to care for the people of the east of England.
"It is entirely unacceptable that any member of the Trust, both on the frontline or anywhere else is subjected to abuse of any kind.”
