Body cameras deter attacks and abuse at Welsh hospitals

Body cameras deter attacks and abuse at Welsh hospitals Body cameras are being used to record attacks and abuse towards hospital staff at five of Wales' health boards in a bid to deter violent behaviour.

Aneurin Bevan is the latest to give security staff the cameras after 15,113 incidents in the last five years.

One A&E nurse said he was threatened on a weekly basis and once had a patient grab him by the throat.

He said the cameras meant "it's no longer just our word against theirs". BBC News
