'Vital lifesaving equipment' stolen from ambulance

Ambulance bosses are asking to the public's help in identifying a man who was at the scene when an ambulance was broken into and vital lifesaving equipment was stolen.

It happened in the early hours of Monday 15th July in Shrewsbury as the crew were treating a man inside a nearby property in Dogpole.

Due to the patient's serious condition, the crew had to leave the scene and take the patient on blue lights to Royal Shrewsbury Hospital.

It was only once they had handed over to staff in A&E that they were able to assess what had been taken.

The CCTV on the vehicle has been checked and the attached image is of an individual that the police would like to speak to in connection with their enquiries.
