The HSE and SIPTU representatives have slammed those responsible for smashing the windows on an ambulance outside Dublin’s Mater Hospital in the early hours of Tuesday morning.

According to reports the frequently used emergency vehicle was subjected to a significant amount of damage whilst it was parked outside after the crew transferred a patient to the hospital.

It is understood both the driver and passenger side windows were smashed, whilst there was some damage caused to the bodywork.

Thankfully no one was injured in the incident although the vehicle was left out of commission due to the extent of the damage caused.

Speaking about the incident a SIPTU spokesperson said those behind the vandalism should be ashamed as they unnecessarily caused damage to a vehicle that is primary used to save lives.
