Round about 5 p.m. on 29 August there was a traffic incident at the junction of Shepherds Lane and Princes Road, Dartford. I didn’t see the cause of the accident, but having got my camera on me from an earlier event, took a couple of record pictures. I am always impressed by the speed and efficiency of the two Emergency Services, Fire and Ambulance. They have a well-practiced and co-ordinated approach. They had to cut the roof off one car to effect a rescue, using a body board. All credit to them.
I say deliberately TWO emergency services. We have “Fire and Rescue” and “Ambulance” services. The Police are a “force” and in light of recent events I think that is aptly named. Its only my opinion, but it seems to me the Police are at war with just about everyone. They take an attitude which is destined to alienate them from the very people who could assist them in their work.
