A man has been jailed after damaging an ambulance trolley in west Norfolk.

The man was found guilty of criminal damage at a court hearing on 28th September where he was sentenced to two weeks prison and ordered to pay £142.27 in compensation to the Trust.

The patient was being transported to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in King’s Lynn earlier this year when he took his anger out on Trust property by bending the side of the trolley.

Thankfully, no one was injured in the incident, but the ambulance was forced out of service until a replacement trolley was arranged.

Acts of violence against staff and Trust property will not be tolerated.
