A volunteer paramedic dealing with an emergency returned to his car to find a note complaining about his parking.

Norfolk Accident Rescue Service - which supports emergency services with expertise at serious incidents - said the gesture was "completely unacceptable".

It came after one of its volunteers rushed to the aid of a person needing urgent treatment in the county.

The medic said: "After responding 18 miles under emergency conditions I had to park on a junction.

"It was not causing an obstruction and I fully accept this would not be an ideal place to routinely park however the patient needed treatment from the ambulance crew, myself and a helicopter team.

"I didn't expect it to cause any issues but clearly it did and for that I apologise. Please let me know where you live and when it's one of your loved ones in need of help I will ensure I park in a safer place. The give away if you were wondering was the paramedic sign in the window."

NARS vice chairman Ryan Warwick said: "It's unfortunately a reflection of our less than patient society."
