Tins of brown paint were thrown over an Emergency Ambulance in what is believed to be an on-going parking dispute between a local ambulance station and local residents

Startled & stunned Medics turned up to work this morning (13th July) only to find that one of their Emergency Ambulances had been covered in paint.
In pictures shared exclusively with our team of former emergency services personnel, an empty tin of paint can clearly be seen next to the Ambulance that was covered by unknown suspect(s) during the attack.
The Ambulance had been parked overnight outside of an ‘EMS Ambulance’ station on Marton Street, Skipton in Yorkshire.
Event Medical Services is one of the UK’s leading independent ambulance companies, providing Patient Transportation Services.
Their services including High Dependency, Outpatient/Discharge, A&E support, Paediatric, Bariatric, Repatriation and Long Distance.
EMS Ambulance are also subcontracted by Yorkshire Ambulance Service NHS Trust meaning that a vital resource key to the core function of the emergency services will now be taken out of service whilst it is repaired.

According to our informant, who wished to remain anonymous, there has been a long-standing dispute between some local residents and the private ambulance station in relation to parking restrictions in the area.
Our informant said: “We have regular issues with the neighbours directly opposite our base as it’s on a tight street.
“They don’t like it when we’re parking outside or making any noise.
“They leave notes on our vehicles ( both personal vehicles and ambulances ) regularly.
“But we are shocked that someone has deemed it fit to cover one of our vehicles in paint, meaning that we have to take a vehicle off the road – a vehicle that is often used for High Dependency patient transfers”
The incident is believed to have occurred between 20:00 12th July – 07:00 13th July.
When we asked our informant how they felt having seen the damage they said ‘disgusted’.
Anyone who may have seen what happened, or knows anything about who may have been responsible, is encouraged to make contact with the Police on the non-emergency 101 number.
