The highest proportion of incidents reported
in this period involved threatening behaviours
such as shouting or strong language (50%),
and harassment (30%). Spitting, physical assault
and threats were distributed amongst the range of incidents. Each of the reported incidents usually involved multiple negative behaviours
towards the victim. Refusal of service and admission was accompanied in the majority
of cases by harassment and strong language,
but sometimes also with physical assault.
