Published

An Ambulance crew on a 999 emergency call faced an angry road rage motorists who drove so slow he blocked the route of the ambulance and then got out and shouted abuse at the crew.

Thankfully the crew was not hurt, they dusted themselves off and continued with the emergency call and their shift.

The incident was linked to an earlier incident in which a Honda driver failed to move out the way or an ambulance being driven with lights and sirens.

While shouting abuse at the male and female crew, the driver said he thought he had seen the male crew member in the ambulance swearing at him.

Met Police have confirmed that none of the crew was physically injured, and both continued with their shift.

Police today released an appeal after the crew was responding to an emergency call to help an elderly woman who had an acute illness on December 27, in Sutton, South London.

The crew were on Central Road in Worcester Park when a car pulled up behind the ambulance.

The driver then got out and shouted at the male and female crew in the ambulance.

The driver of the Honda got back into his car and drove off towards Kingston. Police have released CCTV images of the driver while he was out of the car shouting at the ambulance.

He was described as white man, aged in his 40s or 50s and around 5ft 6ins tall and may have been wearing a green jacket, with dark trousers and white trainers.

Police Sergeant John Bouchard of Sutton Borough Police said “The CCTV is not of good quality, it is possible that the image, combined with the man’s link to the Honda, may enable somebody to identify him.

“In the meantime, officers will be working to trace higher quality CCTV from buses and information from Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) systems in order to identify the suspect and the car.

“I would urge the man responsible to come forward and speak to police.

“This is a shocking incident where a member of the emergency services was unjustly abused while on shift, and I would like to think this man will come forward and take responsibility for his actions.”

Officers investigating an incident where a girl tragically died after being recovered from the water at Durdle Door are appealing for witnesses to come forward.

At around 11.30am today, Wednesday 18 April 2018, HM Coastguard received reports of a child and a woman in distress in the water at Durdle Door in Dorset.

The woman was rescued from the water by a member of the public. A Ministry of Defence military range safety vessel, which was in the area and responded to a Mayday broadcast, recovered the girl from the water.

The five-year-old girl, from Salisbury, was taken by the RNLI Weymouth Lifeboat to Weymouth and transferred by the ambulance service to Dorset County Hospital, where she was sadly pronounced dead.

Detective Inspector Steve May, of Dorset Police, said: “Our thoughts are with the family of the young girl involved at this very difficult time.

“At this time there is nothing to suggest this was anything other than a tragic accident however, with the sudden death of any child we have an obligation to carry out an investigation to establish the full circumstances of what happened.

“I am appealing to anyone who witnessed how the girl came to be in the water and has not already spoken to police to contact us immediately.

“There were also a number of visitors in the area at the time and I am appealing to anyone who may have filmed or photographed the incident to please get in touch as it may assist our investigation.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact Dorset Police at www.dorset.police.uk, via email [email protected] or by calling 101, quoting incident number 18:127.
