London Ambulance Service statement – incident in Streatham, south London

Graham Norton, London Ambulance Service Strategic Commander:

“We were called at 1.58pm today (2 February) to reports of an incident in Streatham High Road.

“We worked closely with the other emergency services and sent a number of resources including five ambulance crews, an advanced paramedic practitioner, an incident response officer and a motorcycle responder, and we also dispatched London’s Air Ambulance.

“The first of our medics arrived in four minutes, and were initially directed to a rendezvous point until the Metropolitan Police confirmed it was safe for them to approach and treat patients.

“We treated three patients for injuries, and took all three people to hospital.”
