Ambulance services across the UK hold records of more than 8,500 households who have a history of violence against paramedics, the BBC has learned.

Staff called to emergencies at these addresses are advised to wait for police before entering the premises.

The Patients Association says records must be “absolutely accurate” or “patient safety may be in danger”. (BBC)
