This is the touching moment a paramedic broke down in tears live on LBC after telling James O'Brien he is letting people down by going into isolation because of coronavirus.

David is a frontline worker with the Ambulance Service and has got symptoms of coronavirus, meaning he has to self-isolate for the next seven days.

Speaking to James O'Brien, he was so upset that he couldn't continue to work in the fight against Covid-19.

He said: "I've started my first day of isolation today because I've got symptoms. I feel gutted. I feel let down by my employers. I feel let down by the NHS.

"But I feel I've let down my patients and my colleagues because I know they need me out there as much as I want to be with them.

"I've done this job for 15 years. This is the first time in doing this job that I realise I'm desperately needed and wanted. It makes me sad because I can't be there."
