Paramedics were attacked by a coach driver while treating a seriously ill patient, police claim.
Police say the ambulance crew were called to treat a patient and were attacked by a coach driver today (Tues).
The suspect was then arrested by officers in Camberwell, south London, a short time later.
Two ambulance staff were so shaken they could not finish their shift, but were said to not have suffered serious injury.
Southwark Police tweeted a picture of a police car and the ambulance in the aftermath of the attack.
Officers tweeted this morning at around 9.50am: “@Ldn_Ambulance called for urgent assistance to #SE5 for their crew being assaulted by a coach driver!
