PARAMEDICS on their way to hospital with a patient were shocked when a brick was thrown at their ambulance.

The ambulance was driving on blue lights southbound on the A3M when the brick was launched at the vehicle from a motorway bridge near Bedhampton.

Fortunately one of the crew had seen a person climbing on to the rails of the bridge to throw something and was able to alert the driver who had to slow down to avoid an accident.

Phil Pimlott, the divisional director of South Central Ambulance Service NHS Trust said: ‘We are disappointed and shocked by the incident.

‘We would urge anyone with information to come forward.’

The incident happened on Monday, July 11, at 8.10am.

It is believed school children were responsible.

Anyone with any information is asked to call PC Michael Kutner at Havant police station on 101 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
