Ambulances queue eight deep outside Southport & Formby DGH at 8:30 tonight (Saturday 22nd December 2012)

Some ambulances waited for long periods to hand over patients to doctors. OTS understands some patients were on trolleys in the A&E while frustrated paramedics could do noting about it but just wait.

This pathetic situation left Southport virtually un covered for a while on one of the busiest times of the year.
