5516 was seen in lengthy footage on 'Ambulance' on BBC1 tonight, showing ambulance crews responding to a call concerning a passenger who had suffered cardiac arrest on a bus. The footage showed the bus driver, who is a regular on the Harborne rota, speaking with emergency services. He had pulled in at the Woodgate GP surgery on Stevens Avenue in Woodgate Valley so the chap could receive emergency treatment before ambulance crews arrived. The patient was rushed to QE Hospital but unfortunately could not be resuscitated.

That was on last Thursday's edition @Mike K, I meant to post this myself last Friday but as I didn't see the fleet number fully & then I forgot. Shame about the guy though
