One Of The People Who Damaged Ambulance After England's World Cup Win Has Been Identified

Police have identified one of the people photographed trashing an ambulance in London.

Photographs of a number of people jumping on top of a rapid response vehicle - usually sent to the most serious jobs - went viral after disgusted members of the public attempted to find out who the people were.

The vehicle was left with a smashed windscreen and a dented bonnet and had to be taken off the road to be repaired.

London Ambulance Service tweeted out photos of the badly damaged ambulance.

The official Joint Response Unit Twitter account also tweeted to say: "We are better than this England."

After images of the damaged vehicle were shared online, hundreds of social media users jumped in to condemn the actions of people involved.

Police have now confirmed that one of the people - a woman - has been identified. In a post, cops from Poplar thanked the public for helping find one of the culprits, adding: "Now it's our turn."

Images of the other revellers were tweeted from the Tower Hamlet's Twitter account, urging people to help out and identify them if they could.

The incident, which happened near to Borough Market, took place on Saturday, following England's 2-0 win over Sweden in the World Cup, putting a bit of a downer on what should have been a good day.

Several people were photographed atop the ambulance and with their pictures now doing the rounds on social media, it's fair to assume there will be more identifications in the coming days.
