Northbourne: emergency in Gillam Road
Northbourne: emergency in Gillam Road
I have just arrived home at 10:30 on a wet and windy evening and two ambulances are attending to an emergency in one of the flats hereabouts. The flashing blue lights these days are exceedingly bright - they caused me difficulty reverse-parking as they flummoxed my view in the wing mirrors; and they reflect strongly off a lamppost and even a tree.

The service road to the shops and flats was rendered inaccessible - of course, a secondary consideration to the paramedics compared to seeing to the patient.
