AN EMERGENCY crew returning to their fire-station in East London last night had to give first aid to a cyclist they came across who had just been involved in a road accident.
They gave him oxygen and kept him comfortable until an ambulance arrived.
The crew were on their way back to Whitechapel fire-station after checking a fire-alarm which had sounded in one of the Royal London hospital when they arrived at the accident scene in Commercial Road in the evening rush-hour.
The middle-aged City office worker was on his way home along the A13 when he was involved in a collision with a car. But his injuries were not thought to be serious.
