An ambulance driver has been found guilty of being over the drink drive limit whilst on duty.

Mr Else was attending a 999 call when he was involved in a seven-vehicle pile-up in Stapleford, no one was seriously injured although some did suffer from broken bones.

Mr Else pleaded guilty to driving whilst under the influence and was given a 12-month community order and 200 hours unpaid work. He was also disqualified from driving for two years.

Else no longer works as an ambulance driver after being dismissed and spokesman for the Ambulance Service said not only did he break our requirements to not be under the influence of alcohol whist on duty but he also broke the law and we will not tolerate this.

Holly Harper of Britannia Driving School said: “Nobody should drive whilst under the influence of drink or drugs especially somebody who has most likely witnessed the danger this can cause. He was supposed to be attending a call in order to help a member of the public but instead caused chaos on the way.”
