A hospital is extending a trial of clinical staff wearing body cameras.

The Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital (NNUH) began the trial because of an increase in cases of aggression against staff.

It said it hoped that recording footage would protect workers in situations where they were vulnerable.

The hospital said cameras would only be activated following a warning and "only when an offence is being committed or likely to be committed".

A growing number of emergency service staff including police and paramedics now wear body cameras.
