NHS response times hit by slow-moving torch traffic

In a jam

Paramedics in busy UK metropolitan centres are becoming increasingly frustrated at the carnage caused by the endless Olympic torch procession.

Coupled with the “hot” weather the country is experiencing, (which could also be a result of having the torch constantly burning away) NHS staff are finding themselves not only busy, but often stuck in the mile-long torch tailbacks.

Stressed ambulance driver John said, “On Saturday we had an emergency call but end up following Doctor Who for two hours.

“I tried the lights, the siren and beeping the horn, but everyone assumed it was part of the show.

“People love to slag off the NHS but this torch stuff is a typical example of how we just can’t win sometimes.”
