A&E data 'shows drop in violence' in England and Wales
Violent crime is continuing a long-term fall in England and Wales, according to annual figures from NHS hospitals.
Cardiff University looked at data from almost a third of emergency departments, and found a 12% fall in injuries from violent incidents in 2013.
It is thought that alcohol becoming less affordable, and a drop in binge drinking, could partly explain the findings.
