Sad Day When Idiots Attack Ambulance

It is indeed a sad day for this country when a person is rushed to hospital but has the ambulance ATTACKED on the way. This happened to Alan Smith when he suffered a dislocated ankle as well as a broken leg during United's 1-0 FA Cup defeat at Anfield, and both Manchester United and Liverpool have issued a joint statement condemning the fans.

United and Liverpool said in a joint statement: 'These people aren't real fans of football. Both clubs feel the mindless actions of a few idiots should not overshadow the efforts of all involved to make sure Alan received the best possible treatment as soon as possible.

'Manchester United would also like to point out they are very grateful for the speedy and efficient help of all Liverpool staff.'

A spokesman for the Merseyside ambulance trust confirmed the attack: 'It did not result in any delay in transferring the player to hospital but the trust cannot condone this type of behaviour while administering emergency treatment.'
