Morrisons' Vans Look So Much Like Ambulances Even Paramedics Can't Tell The Difference

Have you ever pulled over to let an ambulance past only to find it's a Morrisons' delivery van?

The Morrisons' vans, which are the same model as most UK ambulances, are also painted in the same distinctive colour. All that's missing is the sirens, really, oh and all the life saving equipment inside.

The delivery staff even wear a similar shade of green to paramedics and emergency technicians; I'm starting to think Morrisons are trolling us here.

Anyway, the delivery vans look so much like ambulances that one paramedic accidentally hopped into one. Claire Thewlis from the Yorkshire Ambulance Services shared the embarrassing mistake on her Facebook page, writing that she'll 'never live it down'. Honestly, Claire, it's an easy mistake to make.

Luckily, her partner was there to take a photo:

Tom Pullen a specialist paramedic told the Mirror: "It's a running joke across all UK ambulance services.

"We always wave to colleagues whenever we drive past each other at work. The amount of times we have waved at a Morrisons' van thinking it is another ambulance."

A spokesperson from Morrisons told the paper: "We're delivering an emergency service to those who need the ingredients for their bolognese." I've never really thought of Morrisons as the fourth emergency service before, but I suppose that's fair enough.

And its not just over-worked and underpaid NHS staff who are making the mistake:
