COUNCIL bosses are urging Government for more help in getting personal protective equipment (PPE) to its key workers.

While the NHS says there is enough PPE, council chiefs saying it is too slow in being delivered.

Many staff working in the adult social care sector are doing so without the adequate PPE at the moment.

Warrington Borough Council chief executive Steven Broomhead and council leader Russ Bowden say the situation must improve.

Mr Broomhead added: "We are raising the lack of PPE at the highest level.

"I have spoken to our MPs about.

"It is not fair to put people in the situation where there is a risk. This needs resolving."

Mr Broomhead says he also wants clarity on the 500,000 people who have signed up to volunteer with the NHS.

He said: "We need to know how this will be decided on a local level.

"Who is deciding who goes where and when will people get that call.

"These are things we are working to get answers on."
