A man has been arrested on suspicion of stealing a medical response bag from an ambulance on a call on Christmas Day.

Paramedics were helping a patient into the vehicle at about 17:40 GMT when a balaclava-wearing thief took the bag and cycled away, South Central Ambulance Service said.

The crew had been tending to a patient at an address on All Saints Road in Buckland, Portsmouth.

The 41-year-old suspect has been released pending further inquiries.
