A vital and life-saving emergency ambulance has had to be taken off of the road after mindless morons decided to attack it as it was being driven along Dibdale Road West, Dudley at around 7 pm on Thursday 11th Feb.
Thankfully, the crew were not injured, and there were no patients on board the vehicle at the time.
The cost of repairs, to be paid for by taxpayers, is thought to run into the 1,000’s of pounds.
A spokesperson for West Midlands Ambulance Service confirmed that images from the vehicle’s onboard CCTV had been shared with West Midlands Police.
Anyone with any information that could help police identify the idiots responsible for the attack should contact West Midlands Police via their live chat on www.west-midlands.police.uk or call 101 quoting log number 3566 of 11 February.
