A woman is set to appear before magistrates later this month after an incident at the town’s hospital.

Elizabeth Ward-Buck, of Eastward Ho, Leiston, was arrested following the scene at the accident and emergency department on Saturday night.

On Sunday, the 51-year-old was charged with two counts of racially aggravated assault, two counts of common assault, and one count of assaulting a police officer.

Among the alleged victims were UCS film and media student Gina Thompson from Nigeria and her Spanish friend. They filmed the incident in which a woman was seen to shout at Ms Thompson in front of patients in the waiting room. Ms Thompson is heard to express her distaste with what was being said.

Ward-Buck has been released on bail and is to appear at South East Suffolk Magistrates’ Court on February 20.
