Those familiar with the Emergency Service Cake fining system will be aware of the various unofficial rules and regulations regarding day-to-day conduct whilst at work.
However, we think that we might have stumbled over an ‘offence’ against the Cake Fine Act that might fall outside of anything that has previously been listed as an ‘offence’.
@ResponseWMP tweeted over the weekend how they had, well, pulled over an ambulance because the ambulance did not have its headlights lights on….
Anyone who drives a vehicle that has a constantly illuminated dashboard will confirm that, in areas where the roads are also well lit, remembering to turn your lights on can be a bit of an ‘issue’.
I would have loved to of heard the conversation that took place between the ambulance crew when they realised that they were being signalled by the police to stop…
The tweet shared by @ResponseWMP said:
‘When you pull @OfficialWMAS over for not having their headlights on #Cakes’
IN response, @WMASSTStarkey said:
‘ermmmmmm and shall we discuss the job we just attended with you guys? Cake can be sent to Tash & Marek @ Hollymoor at the earliest convenience – thanks!’
Another twitter user was quick to point out that the exchange was quickly turning into a ‘blue-on-blue’ incident by saying (@Shanem) :
‘Blue on blue, repeat blue on blue’
So what is the suitable cake fine for being pulled over by your colleagues? We are thinking maybe some french fancies or perhaps some slices of millionaire shortbread?

Before you go...
We need your help. As former emergency services & armed forces personnel, we pride ourselves on bringing you important, fast-moving and breaking news stories which are free from the negative bias which is often directed at the emergency services by some sections of the mainstream media.
One of the reasons we started 'Emergency Services News' was because we became tired of reading badly informed stories about the emergency services which seemed only ever to highlight negative aspects of the job.
We want to be the unheard voice of the remarkable men and women who serve in the emergency services, NHS and armed forces. And with around 500k page views each month, we are getting there!
As income from ads, the mainstay source of income for most publishers, continues to decline; we need the help of our readers.
And remember, if you have a service, product or job vacancy that you would like to promote to our large readership, then you can buy advertising space in our articles.
You can support emergency services news from as little as £1. It only takes a minute. Every contribution, however big or small, is vital for our future.
Please help us to continue to highlight the life-saving work of the emergency services, NHS and armed forces by becoming a supporter.
