Woman charged after paramedics ‘verbally abused and note left on ambulance’

Kirsty Sharman is due to appear before magistrates and faces an allegation she breached a restraining order.

A 26-year-old woman has been charged with a public order offence in connection with an incident where a foul-mouthed note was left on an ambulance windscreen.

The crew was also allegedly subjected to verbal abuse after parking in a residential street while responding to a 999 call in the Tunstall area of Stoke-on-Trent at the weekend.

In a statement, Staffordshire Police said officers had also charged Kirsty Sharman, who is from Tunstall, with breach of a restraining order.

Sharman will appear at North Staffordshire Justice Centre in Newcastle-under-Lyme on Tuesday.

The arrest followed a plea on social media by ambulance staff, who reported how colleagues had found a hand-written note complaining that the vehicle was parked outside their house.
