An ambulance taking a Polperro man to hospital with a blood clot has stopped to pick up hitchhikers.

Officials say the are investigating what happened during the run to Derriford.

60 year old Glenn Buscombe was sent to hospital in pain, where doctors battled to save his leg.

But he says he was "pretty shocked" when paramedics pulled over to pick up a man and woman on the A38.

He hopped in the front while she climbed in with him and struck up a conversation about what was wrong.

The ambulance service says the stretch near the Carkeel roundabout is dangerous - and the driver thought he had a duty of care.

An investigation has been launched into exactly what happened.

A spokesman for South Western Ambulance Service NHS Foundation Trust said: "The Trust has received a complaint from Mr Buscombe relating to a routine transfer from his home address to Derriford Hospital, Plymouth, in the early hours of Sunday, April 6th.

"The Trust takes all complaints seriously and has started an investigation to establish exactly what happened during the transfer.

"Once this investigation has completed we will be writing to Mr Buscombe again to inform him of our findings and the outcome of the investigation."
