No, they didn't come to the aid of the ambulance service- they came to the aid of the car driver. The ambulance was in no danger, nor was it trapped or hampered by a road blockage.

The Fire & Rescue service did their job- rescue- and the ambulance service did theirs. It happens all the time. Hardly newsworthy.

Dear Argus - in the good old days the Argus would send a reporter out to a crime or newsworthy item to photograph it and for the reporters to talk to people at the incident - why don't you do that now?

The photos are ridiculous - the one above has an ambulance car and a helicopter - one of those isn't even part of this story, so why are you using it?!

Come on, you need to improve your service to the public. You've got worse over time and there's no excuse for this, things are meant to be improving over time.
