A 999 ambulance was stuck behind cars in   roadworks on Queens Drive, Liverpool, on Friday afternoon (3rd August 2012). 

Many children from Southport are taken to Alder Hey Hospital each week and every second is vital.

There were cars and lorries queuing for about half a mile on Queens Drive but there was no gap for  ambulances to get by . It was a one lane only!

An eyewitness motorist said: “Cars and lorries couldn’t move anywhere to let the emergency services past.

“All the while the ambulance was waiting in the traffic with blue lights flashing. Why can’t the   council leave a gap for emergency vehicles?
