Police say they will take a zero-tolerance approach to anyone caught endangering the lives of emergency service crews after fireworks were thrown at an ambulance in Newport.
Paramedic Jason Harvey and emergency medical technician Nick Simons were at a patient's address on Commercial Road in the Pill area of the city at around 11pm on October 16 when a large number of fireworks were aimed at them. The Welsh Ambulance Service says fireworks were also set off towards them as they transferred the patient to the back of the ambulance and as they drove away to hospital.
The Welsh Ambulance Service Trust is appealing for anyone who witnessed the incident to contact Gwent Police.
Gwent Police says that while it appreciates people will be celebrating Halloween and Bonfire Night with fireworks, it will take a zero-tolerance approach to anyone putting crews' safety in danger.
