NHS staff have been banned from wearing Crocs shoes amid health and safety worries, which may lead to warning signs being developed.

A safety message has been distributed to all health boards, advising that the shoes may not offer adequate protection from sharp objects that can cause foot injuries, according to the Western Mail.

Despite this, a number of nurses have disapproved of the rule, with one worker in Cardiff and the Vale of Glamorgan saying: "We work 12-and-a-half-hour shifts and for those of us who do wear them find they help get us through the day."

The nurse highlighted that Crocs have been worn by thousands of staff for years and have always complied with uniform policies.

Last month, the East London and West Essex Guardian Series reported that the Hawkswood Nature Reserve has reopened with new safety signs.

The site was closed for eight months after the safety measures needed to be adopted.ADNFCR-2754-ID-800726969-ADNFCR
