A new interactive map shows the number of ambulances and police vehicles in every city in the UK.
The new map is a collaboration between the Met Police and the Royal College of Surgeons.
It is part of a campaign called the “Emergency Ambulance Service Network” which aims to reduce road traffic accidents.
Here are some of the highlights: “The data from the Ambulances Service Network shows that ambulance service numbers are on the rise and are rising fast.
We’ve seen more than 100,000 new ambulances added to the network over the past four years, and this represents a 50% increase on the previous year.
The number of vehicles on the road has also increased, reaching more than 1.8 million by 2020, up from less than 1 million in 2020.
This is an increase of almost two million vehicles a year, compared with a 5% increase in 2020.”
The Royal College says the figures show that there are more people travelling to hospital because of road accidents than ever before.
“In fact, the number per person on the roads has been rising at an annualised rate of almost seven per cent over the last decade.
This trend has been mirrored by the number in emergency departments, where numbers have risen by nearly two per cent a year.
This has had a major impact on the number and severity of hospital admissions.”
The Met Police say it is important to understand how much the number on the streets has increased.
“Our main focus is to make sure we are making the most of the infrastructure available to the public,” a spokesperson said.
“We’re investing £2bn in roads and our roads are a key priority for us.”
There are still some areas of London with a large number of emergency vehicles, such as central London, but it is now much smaller, with just 1,300 vehicles in the capital.
It has been revealed that there were more than 700,000 accidents in London last year.
In the past three years, London has experienced a dramatic increase in ambulance and police numbers.
In 2015, there were 5,742 emergency vehicles in London, compared to just 1.7 in 2016.
This was driven by a huge rise in ambulance numbers, particularly in the early part of the year.
As the year progressed, the numbers decreased, but they have not been at the same level since then.
In 2017, there are just 1 in 4,000 emergency vehicles.
There are also still about a quarter of a million people living in London who have no ambulance service at all.
“The rise in the number has been particularly high in central London.
In London, the rate of ambulance casualties and deaths has gone up in line with the increase in road traffic, particularly during winter months,” the Met said.
The Met is currently working on plans to tackle traffic accidents by increasing the number, speed and frequency of ambulance services.
“At present, London Ambulences have the highest number of trained paramedics in the world and we are committed to increasing the level of training available to all emergency services across the capital,” the spokesperson added.
The Royal Colleges of Surgeon said the rise in numbers of ambulants and police officers were “a welcome development”.
“The new Ambulents Service Network is an important step in reducing the number or severity of road traffic injuries in London and the rest of the UK,” a Royal College spokesperson said, “and is likely to have a significant impact on reducing the incidence of serious accidents.”
