Praise has been pouring in for the work done by members of our NHS units following last week's major incident in Stevenage which left 17 injured.

Everyone from relatives of those involved to the East and North Herts' director of nursing have been commending the work of those who assisted victims of the crash.

Former Stevenage senior ambulance officer Gary Sanderson suggested the collision had the highest casualty count for a town incident in the last 30 years.
