The MP for North Norfolk and former Health Minister Norman Lamb

:00:11.:00:15.

is warning the unprecedented strain on hospitals is making staff more

:00:16.:00:18.

Figures obtained through a Freedom of Information request show

:00:19.:00:28.

a national rise in surgery blunders and more cases of delayed diagnosis.

:00:29.:00:31.

Norman Lamb says the figures he obtained from NHS England show

:00:32.:00:34.

patients are being failed because the NHS

:00:35.:00:36.

The figure show nationally the numbers of surgical incidents

:00:37.:00:43.

have more than doubled in three years.

:00:44.:00:46.

There were 740 incidents in 2015-2016 and one of

:00:47.:00:52.

the main areas of concern was surgeons operating

:00:53.:00:54.

on the wrong part of the body.

:00:55.:00:56.

The whole system is under impossible strain.

:00:57.:01:01.

The government simply isn't providing sufficient funding

:01:02.:01:03.

and everyone outside the government knows

:01:04.:01:05.

that this isn't sustainable and there are consequences.

:01:06.:01:08.

I think if you have people, staff, clinicians

:01:09.:01:10.

then there will be mistakes that happen.

:01:11.:01:16.

Serious incidents are anything from slips, trips and falls

:01:17.:01:20.

to suboptimal care of deteriorating patients.

:01:21.:01:23.

Our region's hospitals though seem to be bucking the national trend.

:01:24.:01:27.

Serious incidents have actually fallen in the east.

:01:28.:01:30.

Within the last year, there have been far less,

:01:31.:01:38.

The Department of Health says the national rise in

:01:39.:01:43.

serious incidents is due to better recording of such occurrences.

:01:44.:01:47.

But with the increasing pressure on our hospitals, there are

:01:48.:01:49.

fears rising demand will continue to lead to serious errors.

:01:50.:01:56.

A man and a woman have been arrested on suspicion of murder after a man

:01:57.:02:01.

Paramedics were called to the house in Bentley Avenue

:02:02.:02:05.

It's believed the man had been assaulted yesterday evening.

:02:06.:02:10.

Essex Fire Service say a man in his 50s has been left

:02:11.:02:13.

homeless after a fire at his flat in Chelmsford.

:02:14.:02:16.

It's thought it started accidentally after an electric heater got too

:02:17.:02:19.

Two neighbouring flats also suffered water damage.

:02:20.:02:29.

In Rugby Union, Northampton had a narrow win away to Gloucester

:02:30.:02:32.

Gloucester looked set for victory but Saints nipped ahead just seven

:02:33.:02:36.

minutes before time to win by 13 points to 12.

:02:37.:02:38.

Football now and the busy festive programme continues

:02:39.:02:40.

Eight of our teams played yesterday and there was plenty of late drama.

:02:41.:02:47.

Here's our sports editor Jonathan Park.

:02:48.:02:49.

It was a match that Norwich manager Alex Neil badly needed to win

:02:50.:02:53.

But, in the end, the Canaries had to settle for

:02:54.:02:56.

They should've won but Cameron Jerome had

:02:57.:03:01.

To make matters worse for Alex Neil, his team finished the game

:03:02.:03:05.

with ten men when Robbie Brady was sent off

:03:06.:03:08.

They lie seven points off the play-off places.

:03:09.:03:12.

In League 1, in form Southend were on course

:03:13.:03:14.

for a fourth win in a row when Simon Cox put them

:03:15.:03:17.

in front against Charlton, midway through the first half.

:03:18.:03:19.

The Shrimpers were denied all three points though right at the death

:03:20.:03:22.

when Andrew Cross' volley found the back of the net.

:03:23.:03:24.

Peterborough are one place below Southend and

:03:25.:03:26.

needed their own late drama to rescue a point

:03:27.:03:28.

Jordan Willis gave the struggling Sky Blues a first half lead.

:03:29.:03:32.

But deep into stoppage time, Michael Bostwick headed Posh level.

:03:33.:03:35.

The late goal theme continued at Bramall Lane

:03:36.:03:38.

but it was Northampton Town who were on the wrong end of

:03:39.:03:41.

Kieron Freeman's goal took Chris Wilder's Sheffield United

:03:42.:03:44.

to the top of the table and inflicted a fifth defeat

:03:45.:03:46.

in seven matches to Robert Page's Cobblers.

:03:47.:03:49.

In League 2, Luton were too strong for Barnet, winning 3-1

:03:50.:03:51.

The Hatters went ahead in style when Alan Sheehan

:03:52.:03:55.

Barnet levelled but another brilliant strike from

:03:56.:03:59.

Which then became 3-1 for Nathan Jones' team, who lie fifth.

:04:00.:04:06.

Two places above Cambridge, who were set for a sixth win

:04:07.:04:08.

in a row, when Harrison Dunk put them ahead against Leyton Orient.

:04:09.:04:11.

But Ollie Palmer salvaged a point for

:04:12.:04:13.

Once more, late goals were the key for

:04:14.:04:18.

The scores were level at 2-2 when Chris Porter

:04:19.:04:21.

Tarique Fosu-Henry finished the

:04:22.:04:32.

match off in stoppage time for John McGreal's

:04:33.:04:33.

The Norfolk seaside town of Sheringham has resurrected

:04:34.:04:38.

the town's New Year's Day dip after a 10-year break.

:04:39.:04:40.

Around 50 swimmers braved the cold North Sea temperatures,

:04:41.:04:42.

It was organised by a local lifeboat helmsman to raise money

:04:43.:04:46.

Much more better than what I expected.

:04:47.:04:52.

Brilliant turnout, despite the weather.

:04:53.:04:54.

It was raining this morning but luckily

:04:55.:04:56.

A massive thank you to everyone turning up and donating to the RNLI.

:04:57.:05:03.

And there are more pictures of the New Year swim on our

:05:04.:05:06.

Hello there and a very happy New Year.

:05:07.:05:11.

It was rather a damp day today and that rain

:05:12.:05:13.

is now starting to pull away to the south.

:05:14.:05:16.

And behind, the skies are clearing so it will be a cold night.

:05:17.:05:19.

Temperatures are going to fall very close to freezing and

:05:20.:05:21.

in a few spots, they will actually fall below freezing.

:05:22.:05:24.

So the risk of icy stretches first thing in morning.

:05:25.:05:27.

Now, there will be a little bit of cloud around

:05:28.:05:34.

first thing and always the risk of just a few showers

:05:35.:05:37.

But elsewhere, it's mostly dry, lots of sunshine around.

:05:38.:05:40.

Temperatures really struggling to rise tomorrow.

:05:41.:05:43.

There will be a little bit more cloud around as we head into

:05:44.:05:48.

But certainly staying very cold and very frosty

:05:49.:05:52.

We're back tonight at 10:50, slightly later than normal.

:05:53.:06:07.

Good evening. Well, to Bake Off 2017, the weather has been fairly

:06:08.:06:16.

mixed, wet and cloudy in the South, colder but clearer further north.

:06:17.:06:19.

This was taken in County Down earlier in the day, plenty of

:06:20.:06:22.

sunshine there, but with clear skies by day, a cold nights tonight. That

:06:23.:06:30.

will fill the south across the country, the cloud and rain clearing

:06:31.:06:33.

through the early hours of Monday morning across that area. This is

:06:34.:06:36.

how it is looking

:06:37.:06:37.
