Violence against police is being glorified by people uploading images of attacks on officers to social media, one of Britain's top police chiefs warned yesterday. Andy Rhodes, of the National Police Chiefs’ Council, said the filming of such attacks was “sickening” but was “becoming the norm” encouraged by the wide ownership of iphones and social media. “People now seem obsessed with capturing footage to get them hits on YouTube,” he said. “I think there is something more sinister.

David Currie, 50, died in hospital after hours of deteriorating at the surgery where nurses failed to pick up that he was developing cardiac arrest. Nurses at Fletton Surgery in Peterborough thought his deterioration was gastroenteritis and ordered a “non-emergency ambulance” before calling his wife to bring new clothes.
