Following yesterday’s tragic incident please see our quote from Inspector Chris Watson from Herefordshire:

“This was a tragic and difficult incident to deal with and our thoughts are with their family and with our colleagues at West Midlands Ambulance Service.

“We are still thoroughly investigating this incident and although at an early stage, we are satisfied that this was not a deliberate act despite some speculation on social media.

“We are continuing to support the victim’s family at this challenging time and would ask that they are given time to grieve and respect their privacy. They would like to thank everyone for the support and well wishes they have received.

“We would appeal for any witnesses to the incident or anyone who may have dashcam footage from the area to contact PC Adrian Davies at Hereford Police Station on 101 quoting reference 101 i 24April.”

We will not be providing interviews or making further comment at this stage.
