Incidents like this have no place in football and those involved should be ashamed of their actions.

The football match was very peaceful with a great atmosphere with most people managing to avoid any violence.

But sadly it’s the few that spoil it for everyone. A number of people required medical treatment following the clashes. Fans from both teams were involved equally in the violence.

One police officer held a Middlesbrough fan back away from the Ultras who were trying to attack the Middlesbrough fans heading home after the match.

Officers placed themselves between to two sets of fans to stop the fighting and prevent any further fighting.

Cleveland Police and the Met Police in small numbers managed to keep the two sets of fans separated as they both continued to hurl abuse at each other and attempted to get back to each other.

While officers held the Middlesbrough fans back Crystal Palace then attempted to force their way out of the police wall to get to the Middlesbrough fans as the limited number of officers police the football match. This forced police to close the road and hold all of the remaining Middlesbrough fans back and allowing Crystal Palace fans to be walked to the Train Station without further incidents from the Middlesbrough fans. Police managed to regain control of the situation and marched them down to the Train Station.

Officers did not have the support of Police Dogs, Police Horses or the Air support unit during the match.

Officers relying on a more cost-effective way to keep their eyes from the sky. Police Officers look out of the command centre window at the top the Stadium to have an overhead view of what is happening.

Rude note left on Ambulance while paramedics deal with an emergency

Published

on

Paramedics have returned to their Ambulance to find a rude note on the windscreen claiming they waited 45 minutes for their drive to be unblocked.

If you need to leave your house urgently please come and knock on the door of the house where the emergency is happening, and if we can we will move the Ambulance.

Have you been angered by an emergency service vehicle blocking your drive?

The Paramedics returned to their ambulance in Leicester and were urged to “have some consideration when parking?

Surely that is the last thing going through a Paramedics mind dealing with a 999 call out, oh let’s wait a moment while we park this Ambulance more considerately while someone is laid moments from death on the floor when minutes matter in a life or death situation.

Paramedics dealing with an emergency in Leicester were left a note urging them to “have some consideration” about their parking.

The note “Please have some consideration where you park the ambulance!” the note said. “This is not the first time.”

East Midlands Ambulance Service NHS Trust criticised the “rude” note and said the crew parked as “considerately as possible” in the early hours of the morning.

Lee Brentnall, paramedic and ambulance operations manager for Leicestershire, said: “It is so disappointing to see that a rude note has yet again been left on one of our ambulances.

“This upsets our dedicated ambulance crews when they are trying to help our patients and do their job.

“Leaving a note will not resolve the situation as we are unlikely to see it until we are leaving in the ambulance to take the patient to a hospital or to go to our next job.”

Mr Brentnall added: “Our crews are approachable. If you genuinely need to leave your house urgently and we are blocking your access, please come and knock on the door where the emergency is taking place.

“Sometimes we will be able to move the vehicle, for example, if we are treating a patient but they do not need both of us there at the time.

What did our Twitter followers say? 

Karen Canner tweeted Police Hour saying “We moved our car and invited an ambulance to park on our drive to easier reach our neighbour who was in need and had a skip on her driveway. would anyone be angry at a person having a medical emergency being helped? i just don’t get it.”

Silent Running said I cannot understand the mentality of people complaining, i’m sure they’d be all for it if they were the ones being saved, the selfish, non-empathetic bastards

You can block my entrance or back passage anytime

Rachel said “Erm yeah no I havnt and wouldn’t even if my car was stuck I’d wait they’d not do it unless they had no choice”

Well to be fair what kind of person would actually be angered by an ambulance blocking them in, Have we really lost the basic ability to communicate.
