Hull University Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust say about 35 people have attended the department every hour since 10:00 this morning, many of whom could have been treated elsewhere.

Teresa Cope from the trust said: “We are seeing scores of people streaming through the doors of our Emergency Care Area, forcing us to move our doctors and nurses from other areas to cope with the demand.

“This increase in demand is not sustainable and we require people to think twice before coming here.

“If you come to Hull Royal with anything other than a genuine emergency, be prepared to wait hours and hours to be seen.”
