Default Three London Ambulance staff members have been suspended for making racist comments

Three London Ambulance staff members have been suspended for making racist comments

Sep 6, 2020

The London Ambulance Service has suspended three members of staff due to alleged racist comments about the Black Lives Matter movement and George Floyd's death.

The racist comments were caught over an internal communications channel shortly after the death of George Floyd at the hands of the Minneapolis Police Department which sparked worldwide Black Lives Matter protests demanding justice and change in regards to police brutality and systemic racism.

The comments were said to have caused black colleagues "great distress".

In response to the comments made, Chief Executive Garrett Emmerson stated, "although we are now much more representative of this diverse city we serve, we’ve still got some way to go to see that progress reflected in how we treat and respect each other in the workplace."
