An ambulance has been filmed trying to get through queues of cars waiting to catch the ferry from Cirkewwa, with little success.
A video from the scene, provided from photographer and Newsbook blogger, Daniel Cilia, shows that the ambulance with its sirens blaring, had to wait for the next ferry to Gozo.
A social media post on the Facebook page GOZONE states that the ambulance had been fighting its way through traffic that was stacking from the ferry terminal to Paradise Bay.
They also state that the Ta’Pinu ferry had just left fully loaded and the next was expected to be filled with trucks.
They add that they will realistically reach Gozo by 7PM.
