'Winter from hell' has arrived - doctor's NHS crisis warning

There is a "humanitarian crisis" in NHS hospitals in England, the British Red Cross has said.

The charity said volunteers and staff had been helping patients get home from hospital and called for more government money to stabilise the situation.

Dr Mark Holland, president of the Society for Acute Medicine, said the description "humanitarian crisis" had some truth in it.
