‘Public order’ arrest over ‘no right to be here’ note on ambulance

It’s worth quoting the response to Ms Tudor by Nick Adderley, Assistant Chief Constable of Staffordshire Police.

He wrote: “Sadly we have to ‘tolerate’ those in society who only ever think about themselves until such time when they need you/us. Then it’s a different story.

“Just know that 99.9% of the public really value and appreciate what you/we do.”

A woman has been arrested after an abusive note was left on an ambulance which read: “you have no right to be parked here. I couldn’t give a s**t if the whole street collapsed.”

Police … confirmed a 26-year-old woman had been arrested on suspicion of public order offences.

The handwritten message was placed on an emergency vehicle in Tunstall, Stoke-on-Trent, demanding that paramedics move on.

West Midlands Ambulance Service paramedic mentor Katie Tudor posted a picture of the note on Twitter, copying in Staffordshire Police’s main account.

She also claimed the working paramedics were subjected to “a load of verbal abuse.”

Chief Inspector John Owen replied to the latest tweet on Monday, writing: “We have arrested a 26 year old female for public order offences. Emergency Services must be able to carry out their roles without fear of abuse/intimidation of any kind.”

  1. Growing Flame

    A good response by the Police Officer. This example shows the importance of the Labour leadership’s emphasis on a change of attitude and culture throughout society, not just tweaking the economics. To become a country that looks after all its residents equally, and responds to need worlwide. Which means a level of tolerance towards others with more immediate needs than ourselves at any given time. And it means contributing fairly to the public purse even if, right now, we don’t actually require help with health, or education, or housing, or a decent pension. One day, we might need a lot of help.
