Long describes robbery from ambulance as disgraceful

Alliance East Belfast MP Naomi Long has described the robbery from an ambulance on Ladas Way in East Belfast on Friday morning as disgraceful. Radio and satellite navigation equipment was stolen from the ambulance while the crew were inside a house.

To replace this equipment has cost the ambulance service vaulable time and resources that could have been better spent delivering medical treatment.

“If anybody has any information about this robbery or about the sale of this stolen equipment then they must contact the police.”
