TWO men who raided an ambulance in Exeter while paramedics treated a patient received on-the-spot fines of £80 for being drunk and disorderly.

The incident happened at around 1am in the Barley Mount area of Redhills, Exeter.
An spokesman for the South West Ambulance Service said: "The patient's treatment was unaffected and the vehicle suffered no loss or damage."

    Irrespective of the Vehicle not receiving loss or damage, or the patients treatment affect, there was the potential for such an act to have far more serious implications. Therefore I think £80.00 is a far to lighter punishment for the two involved. Not necessarily a custodial sentence, but certainly a long stretch of unpaid work as well as the fine. Washing down emergency services vehicles every Saturday for a year would be fairly apt.
