Aggression and verbal abuse!
A new Health and Safety report which is to be considered next week reveals that there have been 58 cases of verbal abuse or aggression towards York Council staff.
They outnumber the total of all other risks combined which are listed in the report.
The results support other reports which suggest that aggression towards “blue light” services such as firefighters and ambulance workers has been on the increase recently.
A sad reflection on an increasingly divided and confrontational society.
