Silent Witness co-star Emilia Fox also backed Liz’s support for #SavetheNHS as she tweeted “HUGE amounts of love” to her fellow actor:

Carr, who plays forensic scientist Clarissa Mullery in the BBC crime drama, was taken to hospital when she received “minor cuts” in the incident. She was discharged shortly afterwards.


The star, who suffers from congenital disorder arthrogryposis multiplex congenita and is a wheelchair user, was with her carer just before 8pm on Tuesday evening when the attack occurred.
