Exasperated paramedics in Willesden have appealed to passers-by not to throw fruit at their ambulance.
Crews from London ambulance service took to social media site Twitter after someone launched a citrus fruit at their vehicle as it passed through Willesden High Road at the weekend.
The Twitter announcement read: “Please don’t throw fruit at our ambulance when we drive past you. It distracts the driver and is a waste [of] a perfectly tasty bit of fruit.”
The tweet was illustrated with a picture of an orange fruit, but the paramedic affected by the fruit projectile was unable to establish what kind of fruit it was.
The London ambulance service responded to a request for comment from the Times, tweeting: “believe it was an orange but may have been a tangerine.”
