A paramedic's bike was stolen as he treated a patient in the City. The bike and its life saving equipment disappeared from Minories last month.

Cycle Response Unit Manager, Tom Lynch said:

It’s shocking that someone would steal from a paramedic who was busy treating a patient. This causes a lot of disruption to our Service as there was a delay before they were able to get back out on duty. Our paramedics should be able to focus solely on their patients and not have to worry about someone stealing their equipment. City of London Police are appealing for witnesses and we would urge anyone with any information to let them know.
