Traffic wardens in Hartlepool have been issued with bullet-proof vests as they face increasing violence from angry drivers, reports The Daily Mail (p33).

The wardens have been told to wear the suits, which are also stab-proof, all the time they are on duty. They also attend police self-defence classes and are taught restraint techniques and communication skills.

Police confirmed that attacks on wardens are on the increase. 'The chief constable has a duty of care to all employees,' said a spokesman. 'Traffic wardens must be protected juat as police officers must.'
