Fly-tippers block route for ambulances carrying dying patients


The vile fly-tippers have blocked a route for paramedics carrying dying patients to end of life care. The huge pile of rubbish included a petrol lawnmower and broken glass which obstructed vehicles from getting to Keech Hospice in Luton, Bedfordshire.

A hospice staff member warned that the fly-tippers’ behaviour could block dying adults and children from entering the hospice and getting the care they need.

Lorna Chinnock, communications manager at the hospice, said: “We very often take people for end of life care. They would be blocked from getting into the hospice.

“The fly-tipping has happened on numerous occasions, but this is the worst we have seen it.

“It was all across the road and completely blocking the entrance.”

“Visitors come here to see loved ones we care for and today this will have been the first thing they will have seen. It is not the welcoming message we would like for Keech Hospice Care.

“We hope the people who are dumping the rubbish realise what they are doing and stop.”

Keech Hospice Care has eight beds for adults and runs a day centre for patients nearing the end of their lives.

The hospice specialises in caring for terminally ill children in Bedfordshire, Hertfordshire and Milton Keynes.
