Man charged after threat to ambulance crew left on windscreen


A man has been charged after he allegedly left a note on a London Ambulance fast-response vehicle at the scene, threatening it would be “smashed”.

Medics were called to a property in Westferry Road, Tower Hamlets, at about 10.30pm on Tuesday and rushed a patient who had suffered a critical heart problem to hospital.

But when one of the medics returned to collect their vehicle at around 2.30am yesterday, they found a note, pictured, on the windscreen.

The message, scrawled in green ink and capitals on a piece of A4 paper, read: “Warning: This is a private parking space. Next time it will be smashed.”

The man believed to have written the note approached and allegedly began acting aggressively. Police were called and a man was arrested.

Tower Hamlets police yesterday tweeted a picture of the note with the message: “This was left on @Ldn_Ambulance after they were dealing with a cardiac arrest patient! Needless to say one is in custody now.”

LAS said it asked for police help and dispatched extra crews, including an incident response officer and the hazardous area response team, to assist the medic.

It said that crews attending medical emergencies occasionally use their legal exemption to “park where they have to”, to reach patients as fast as possible.

Motin Miah, 38, of Westferry Road, was charged today with a Section 4 public order offence. He has been bailed to appear at Thames Magistrates’ Court on Friday, June 1.
