00.00 | 30 November 2011 |

A London Ambulance Service driver has been spotted texting at the wheel while carrying a patient, according to a report in the Mirror.

The NHS worker spent three minutes sending text messages as he drove with his other hand on the wheel, occasionally glancing up ahead to look at traffic. He was also not wearing a seatbelt.

Chris Mashadi was a passenger in another car when he spotted the scene and took the picture. He said: “I could not believe my eyes. An ambulanceman in an official NHS fluorescent jacket was studying his phone and not the road. I could see clearly he was texting someone. We drove alongside him for three minutes and he didn’t stop staring at his phone.”
