The number of A&E patients in England waiting on trolleys for more than four hours to be admitted has risen by over a third to the highest level since records began, prompting warnings that cash pledged by the government will not be enough to relieve the acute pressure on the NHS.

There were 57,694 patients waiting more than four hours from the decision to admit to admission last month, 35% higher than July last year, according to the latest NHS performance statistics, published on Thursday.
