Covid: NHS doctor 'receives 20 to 30 abusive messages a day'

Dr Samantha Batt-Rawden, an intensive care registrar, says NHS staff are facing "devastating" abuse online and at protests.

She thinks it’s driven by coronavirus sceptics and anti-lockdown activists.

In response Dr Batt-Rawden, who is president of the Doctors' Association UK, started her own campaign for people to post blue hearts on social media to show their support for health workers.
