A paramedic on call in the West Midlands has released photos of some truly shocking parking. Simon Wong, working for the West Midlands Ambulance service, tweeted photos of a Nissan Juke which parked so close to his ambulance, the crew were unable to get a stretcher in the back.

He wrote: "Attended a 999 call. When returning to ambulance with PT to go to hospital cars had blocked us in front & back despite us parking on double yellows with our rear light flashing.
