Every year in the UK, thousands of police officers, paramedics and firefighters are attacked and injured in the line of duty. Wounded and traumatised, frontline fighters are stopped from doing what they do best: protecting the public. Critical Incident looks at the dedication of those determined to do their duty and get back on the beat – and shows how the violent criminals responsible for the attacks are brought to justice.

Using dramatic footage captured by body-cams, vehicle dash-cams, CCTV and even mobile phones, the series will show the terrifying moments that changed the lives of these public service champions and how the police track down and lock up the criminal villains. So as the 999ers bravely report back for duty, their attackers are caught and sentenced.

With exclusive access to the specialised treatment centres that care for injured emergency service workers, we follow their road to recovery, including the emotional return to duty. And it is a celebration of this desire to serve the public again that is at the heart of the series.

Episode 1

In Hartlepool, PC Mick Johnson is stabbed in the arm as he attends reports of a man behaving strangely at a local convenience store. The shopkeeper is trapped inside with the knifeman and so, despite his injuries, brave Mick heads in to get her to safety. A policewoman who was mowed down by a driver trying to resist arrest fights to get back on the beat. And a firefighter has his final bout of surgery following ten years of treatment, after a brick thrown through his window broke his nose in 11 places.
