The West Midlands Ambulance Service shared a photo of the note on Facebook and Twitter, and wrote: "Sometimes we just don't know quite what to say. This was the note left on one of ambulances today. 'You may be saving lives but don't park your van in a stupid place and block my drive.'

"At the time, the crew were helping a man who was extremely unwell after vomiting a lot of blood. They assessed his condition and immediately took him on blue lights to hospital where he was in a critical condition.

"Our staff will always try and park considerately, but sometimes, there just isn't time. #sorry #patientscomefirst".



Social media users took to Facebook to respond to the note.

One wrote: "What a disgrace. Let's hope he or any member of his day never need the ambulance service. We often get blocked in down our road as they have to regularly come out to someone. No one ever complains, we just sit and wait. The crew move the van when they can."

Another said: "Some people's selfishness never ceases to amaze me".

While one wrote: "Not an ounce of empathy... shame on them".
