This is the scene allegedly faced by two paramedics called to save the life of Barry Baker the man the medics are accused of leaving to die in his home.

The ambulancemen were sent to the 59-year-old's home after he dialled 999 saying he thought he was having a heart attack.

But Mr Baker collapsed while on the phone to operators and when the ambulance crew arrived at his house the landline was still open.

At the other end of the line, operators allegedly heard the paramedics make derogatory comments about the state of Mr Baker's house in Braybon Avenue in Patcham, Brighton.

It has been reported the crew had been heard by the operators saying the man was not worth saving and comments were made about the untidy state of the home.

These pictures given to The Argus by A2b Clearances, based in Mill Lane, Brighton claim to show the untidy state of Mr Baker's house.

They show the living room with belongings scattered around the room, an untidylooking bedroom and other rooms covered in clothing, sheets and boxes.

They were published at www. and were given to The Argus by director of A2b Clearances Chris Angel.

At the top of the page it says: "A2b Clearances has recently carried out the clearance of Mr Baker's property in Braybon Avenue, Patcham.

"Mr Baker was believed to be a kind and much liked member of the community according to his neighbours.

"We never got the opportunity of meeting Mr Baker before he passed away, but would like to pass on our thoughts and best wishes to his relatives and would like to thank them for allowing us to publish the before and after pictures of the clearance at Braybon Avenue."

The ambulance workers were arrested on December 5 on suspicion of neglecting to perform a duty in a public office.

Both men have been suspended from their jobs with South East Coast Ambulance Service NHS Trust and bailed until next month while a police investigation is carried out.

No charges have yet been brought. Mr Baker, who was single, worked at JobCentre Plus in Edward Street, Brighton and was a regular at the Ladies Mile Pub in Mackie Avenue, Patcham.

Police said they arrested the two Brightonbased paramedics six days after Mr Baker's death.

A spokesman said: "The men, aged 35 and 44 from the Brighton area, have been questioned concerning public office duty of care matters and bailed to a later date in January 2009."

Mr Baker's funeral has had to be delayed because of the police inquiry into the ambulancemen s actions but a memorial service is due to take place at All Saints Church in Patcham on January 16.

A wake for his friends is to be held at the Ladies Mile pub afterwards. A2b Clearances can be contacted at www. or on 07500 045273 .
