Ambulance crisis


NICOLA Sturgeon has apologised for long ambulance waiting times, announcing that the military could be brought in to help with the backlog in Scotland.

The First Minister was questioned about the death of Gerald

Brown, 65, from Glasgow, who died after waiting for 40 hours for an ambulance.

She said the issues in the service would continue “for a period” as pressure caused by the pandemic continues.
