Manchester A&E director on enormous challenge faced by NHS staff

Of the 116 people hospitalised after the Manchester attack, 75 are being treated in hospitals around Greater Manchester. Twenty-three of those are in critical care, including five children. A large proportion are being treated at the Royal Manchester Infirmary. I went along to join staff as they observed this morning’s silence and to speak with the director of its A&E Steve Jones about the impact on him and his colleagues.
