Letter: Good campaign - no bull

I HAVE been following with interest the Independent on Sunday's recent campaign to have bull bars removed from ambulances.

Prior to your campaign, a proposal to add bull bars to Derbyshire Ambulance Service NHS Trust's vehicles had been under consideration. In view of the research that your paper has brought to light, however, and because of our total commitment to the health and safety of the people of Derbyshire, we have decided that such additions would be inappropriate.

I would like to take this opportunity to offer Derbyshire Ambulance Service NHS Trust's support for this campaign and to wish it every success.
