Kent Police received an initial report on Sunday 22 March 2020, that shortly after 7am, one vehicle was found to have damaged tyres.


Following further enquiries, it has been established that a total of nine tyres from six vehicles were damaged while parked in Haine Road, Ramsgate, overnight between 8pm on Saturday 21 March and 7am the following morning.

District Commander for Thanet, Chief Inspector Ed Ruffle said: ‘Causing criminal damage to emergency vehicles is highly irresponsible, and it could have put staff and patients in danger. To do this at a time when health services are under enormous pressure to keep people safe, could have had dire consequences, and we ask that anyone with information regarding this, contacts us.’

Witnesses are asked to call Kent Police on 01843 222289 quoting 46/52297/20.
