A 68-year-old woman broke her ankle after falling while helping her husband into the house.

Pensioner Josephine needed to be sedated so that a team of doctors and nurses could force the bone back into the correct position.

On a teaser clip for the latest instalment of Channel 5’s A&E After Dark due to air on May 17, Dr Austin was tasked with looking after her.

In Monday’s episode, viewers can expect another busy night in one of the UK’s major trauma centres, as staff of Hull Royal Infirmary are also faced with treating a crushed leg and a patient with a suspected broken back. In minors, a patient also “kicks off” when he is asked to leave after his treatment.

The episode, which will air on Channel 5 at 9pm, will see one of the patients featured “ignore” hospital policy and refuse to leave A&E after his treatment with staff and security “in the firing line when he lashes out”.

The episode also features 27-year-old Chris, who lost control while riding home from a first date on his motorbike, with the 200kg bike flipping and crushing his leg. Dr Sean has to assess the severity of the injury while Chris is feeling the “euphoric” side effects of gas and air.

Meanwhile, Patricia, 60, is rushed into A&E secured to a stretcher in an unusual position, after falling down a full flight of stairs. Patricia is in “excruciating pain” and cannot move. Dr Ayman has to tread “very carefully” when assessing her neck and back as he suspects that she may have some life-changing injuries.

And 46-year-old Stuart comes into minors having split open his fist when punching a wall during a family argument. Dr Kate is on hand to check the severity of the open wound and see whether he might need referring to a specialist for surgery.

Watch A&E After Dark on Channel 5 on Mondays at 9pm.
