There is a controversial debate over whether you should punish drivers of emergency vehicles when they're involved in accidents en route to 999 call outs.
Nicola Stacey was killed when her car collided with a fire engine responding to an emergency call in Sheffield. Despite evidence that the vehicle was exceeding speed guidelines, the driver has never been prosecuted.
Every year there are thousands of crashes involving emergency vehicles and now Nicola's case is being featured on ITV's Tonight programme this evening - which asks should we prosecute? Tina Gelder reports.
In June 2008 Nicola Stacey was killed in Sheffield when a fire engine responding to a 999 call went through a red light and crashed into Nicola's car. She died at the scene and her daughter Lauren was left in a medically induced coma due to her injuries.
Her partner Barry Stevens feels they have never had justice.
Around 700 homes in Lincolnshire are unable to dial 999 for emergency assistance. BT has identified the problem in the Langrick area for telephone numbers starting 01205 28. The problem should be fixed by midnight, but should anybody need to, then the advice is to ring 999 from a mobile phone.
