London Ambulance service was 'too busy' to respond immediately

We were called at 5.31pm to Uxbridge Road.

From the information received, it was established that the patient was conscious, but unfortunately because we were very busy we were not able to send an ambulance immediately.

We did dispatch crews at two different times, but they were then redirected to other patients who were reported to be more seriously ill or injured.

We arrived at the scene just before 8.30pm and the patient was taken to hospital.

Speaking to actonw3.com, Tom Jenkins from Ealing, said: "They left tracks across the pitch and are leaving rubbish strewn across the field and driving cars and vans in and out through the south east gate, across the footpath and field with little or no concern for the people walking in the park.

"A school sports day planned for today has been cancelled as a result. Added to this, in little over 24 hours the beautiful bluebell footpath has become a tip for several tons of building waste. This looks like at least 6 truck loads of rubble.''
