A man has been arrested after an angry note was left on an ambulance at the scene of a medical emergency threatening it would be “smashed”.
Paramedics were treating a patient who had suffered a critical heart problem inside a nearby property at the time.
Police from Tower Hamlets in east London tweeted: “This was left on @Ldn_Ambulance after they were dealing with a cardiac arrest patient! Needless to say one is in custody now. #DTeam”.
The note warned the paramedics of the consequences of parking in the spot where they had left their vehicle, which it said was reserved for a specific person.
It read: “WARNING THIS IS A PRIVATE PARKING SPACE NEXT TIME IT WILL BE SMASHED”.
