A group of PCSOs helped ambulance staff after they came across a medical emergency when out issuing parking tickets.

The officers were returning back to the station in Whittlesey after handing out eight parking tickets when they came across the incident.

A spokesman said: "Officers engaged with the shoppers and answered their enquiries and even popped into the council office for a quick warm up.

"On their way back to the station PCSOs came across a medical emergency and dealt with the incident until medical staff arrived.

The PCSOs were out in force catching anyone who had over-stayed the 1 hour parking limit in Whittlesey town centre and those parking on double yellow lines.

One resident, talking of the 1 hour limit, said: "Well if it's going to take longer than an hour, don't park there. Park in a car park, there are plenty in Whittlesey."

Another added: "I have failed to park in any car park in town at certain times.

"I love the fact that we have free parking we are very lucky. But I think there should be a restriction or charge against all day parking."
