The prime minister is keen on Lansley becoming the next UN under-secretary general for humanitarian affairs and emergency relief , a position that traditionally goes to a Briton.

Emails reveal emergency new steps as teenagers aged 16-18 are put on adult wards rather than in specialist adolescent facilities

The NHS crisis intensified this weekend as hospitals were advised to adopt emergency procedures and admit young mental health patients to adult wards because of an acute national shortage of places for children and adolescents.

Instructions sent by NHS England on Friday night to hospital trusts, and leaked to the Observer, state that the shortage of beds for young mental health patients is now so serious that 16- and 17-year-olds – who should be admitted to specialist child adolescent mental health facilities (Camhs) – are likely instead to be admitted to adult wards.
