Earlier this year, a woman was fined after she admitted leaving a foul-mouthed note on an ambulance in Stoke-on-Trent.
The 26-year-old womantold paramedics to move your f***king van and said she couldnt give a s*** if the entire roadcollapsed.
She also shouted at a male paramedic in what a magistrate called a despicable incident.
