These ambulance staff may have been dying of hunger, but that did not justify them illegally parking in a bus stop on Sunday so they could pop in to get a McDonald's.

They were caught on camera on Sunday afternoon by Lin West who was walking down Epsom High Street at 3.30pm.

She said both private ambulances had their hazard warning lights on and she initially assumed there had been an incident.

But she said: "Two men came out of McDonald's both with food and got into the ambulance at the back.

"I am disgusted that they use an ambulance in this way."
