A second ambulance has been vandalised in the West Midlands in less than 24 hours as it was parked up on a road whilst paramedics were inside a building treating patients.
An ambulance window was smashed as paramedics attended a 999 call to treat the victim of an assault in Shrewsbury in the early hours of Sunday morning.
West Midlands Ambulance Service says another vehicle was vandalised in Warwickshire on the same day.
The bumper of an ambulance had been prised off on one side while a crew was inside a property in Ten Acres in Alcester.
*"It's beggar’s belief why someone would do this to an ambulance, a vehicle designed to help save lives. *
*The ambulance crew noticed the damage immediately after returning to their vehicle and were very disappointed and upset by the incident. *
*Once again, just like the incident we saw in Shrewsbury yesterday, this ambulance had to be taken off the road and as a result was unable to respond to 999 calls. *
Warwickshire Police have been notified and we’re working with them to support their investigation."
