Hi Trisha,
So glad Toni is ok. And so sorry she was in my cab when that happened. We always try and do our best for our customers and when they are with us we are there to make sure they get to where they want to go as safely as possible, it's very distressing when that doesn't happen. I'm ok, just tired bruised and feeling a bit battered.
I agree with you totally, the emergency services were amazing and I cannot neither praise, nor ever thank them enough for their level of professionalism and genuine personal concern for our welfare, yeah it's their job and they did it brilliantly but they went much further.
Not forgetting the 'off duty' ambulance guy who kept my head and neck where it should be until the 'on duty' ambulance people got to us, thank you!
I'll never forget how safe and looked after they all made us feel in such a vulnerable situation. Massive thank you :-)
And yes Pete, the camera played an absolute blinder!
