** UK medic stabbed on call returns to work


** A West Midlands Ambulance Service medic, stabbed three months ago while doing a welfare check on a Wolverhampton man, has now returned to work. The BBC (October 16) said Deena Evans, who sustained both a chest wound and nerve damage in the July 6th attack, is back in her Willenhall ambulance despite still undergoing treatment for her injuries. According to the news site, Evans said the public has been overwhelmingly supportive of her since the assault. There is no information on whether her partner that night, Michael Hipgrave, has also resumed his duties. The attacker, meanwhile, will likely stand trial in May of 2021. Martyn Smith, 52, has pleaded not guilty to wounding with intent x 2.
