Yorkshire ambulance staff to be balloted over strike action

Yorkshire ambulance staff are threatening possible industrial action in a row over staffing.

Yorkshire Ambulance Service insist the change will not jeopardise patient safety but is simply a better use of resources.

But the union, Unison, say management plans to staff some ambulances with two Emergency Care Assistants - rather than having a fully qualified paramedic on board - will put patients at risk.
