Slightly off topic ... yesterday we were on the Shore Road, the closed part, as ambulances tried to get access to a woman who had fallen / was taken ill.
The paramedic car could not get through locked gates at the North end, and when the ambulance arrived it had to drive up on the pavement behind the seating shelter to get access to this road section.
The patient was clearly a hospital case and what if she had suffered a heart attck or worse?
Please do not mention 'the road remains clear for emergency and other vehicles' in the first reply ... what about an accident waiting to happen on Shore Road. The Council could be in very deep water, maybe they will be ... this is, after all A ROAD and a very densly populated tourist location likely to lead to emergencies!!!
Surely a key is available for these situations, but as the Police were about as well, I guess it is not known by the emergency services where it can be obtained?
