  • We have investigated this report and found the vehicle to be taxed; a taxed vehicle is a strong indicator of an interested party and therefore no further action will be taken. Please note that from 01 October 2014 it is no longer a legal requirement to display a tax disc. You can check the tax status of a vehicle online via: https://www.gov.uk/ check-vehicle-tax

    State changed to: No further action

  • It may be taxed but it was towed there for goodness sake!

  • The abandoned ambulance has no MOT.

    Once your MOT runs out then you can’t drive your vehicle or leave it parked on the road. Hence why it needs to be removed.

  • Insurance or MOT issues should be directed to the Police as we do not have the statutory powers to deal with this type of offence. Please note the Police are unlikely to take action unless the vehicle is being actively driven without an MOT.

  • Also looks like it is on double yellow lines.

    “Ambulances are allowed to park on white or yellow lines providing they are engaged on official duties, e.g. it was necessary to park at that point to carry out essential duties or to be as close as possible to the patient they are treating.”

    Considering that it was dumped on double yellow lines 2 weeks ago and it is not carrying essential duties. Therefore it still needs to be towed away. It doesn’t need to be sitting there until 1st July 2024 when its tax runs out.

    If it is stolen (which is an another reason why it could have been dumped) then the police have to power to deal with it.

  • Officer has called to state that vehicle is no longer insured or has a valid MOT, also stated it is not an ambulance but instead a patient transport vehicle, if this could be looked into what action could be taken, been left there for weeks not towed there
