Patients' lives will be at risk during Olympics as ambulances are 'banned' from using fast lane reserved for VIPs

Ambulances carrying the sick and vulnerable will be left stranded in traffic jams during the Olympics while dignitaries beat congestion with 'Games lanes' reserved for VIPs.

Organisers for the London Games rejected a request from NHS London to let ambulances use the new fast lanes and have now been accused of risking patients' lives.

The lanes, which will be implemented across 39 miles of road in central London, will allow 80,000 accredited members of the ‘Olympic family’, including athletes, officials and sponsors to by-pass congestion on the busy roads.

Meanwhile ambulances will only be allowed in the lanes if they have their blue lights on.
