An angry letter was left on an ambulance which was treating a 'time critical' patient.

Tasha Starkey, who works for West Midlands Ambulance Service, tweeted a picture of the letter.

It read:

You may be saving lives, but don't park your van in a stupid place and block my drive.

– Letter left on ambulance

The enraged paramedic said they were treating a 'time critical' patient.

Crew alerted an extremely poorly patient to hospital... minimal on scene time, arrived at hospital to find this note... this patient was TIME-CRITICAL.

In a statement, paramedics said: "Sometimes we just don't know what to say.

"This was the note left on an ambulance today.

"At the time, the crew were helping a man who was extremely unwell after vomiting blood.

"They took him on blue lights to hospital where he was in a critical condition."

Following a wave of support on social media, the ambulance service thanked people for their backing.

The paramedics said: "We still can't believe it, and it appears you can't either.

"Leaves us feeling really rather #sad - thanks again for all your support."
