Paramedic Amanda Fordham, 26, from Scunthorpe has generously supported ambulance colleagues in Manchester who responded to the horrific incident at the arena.

On Tuesday night, with her car packed full of food and drink, Amanda, who works in Gainsborough and Lincoln, drove nearly two hours to Central Manchester Ambulance Station to deliver the treats.

She said: “My friend Jenny is a paramedic in Manchester. I contacted her to check she was ok and she told me she needed a cup of tea and a slice of cake, the idea came from that.”

Amanda’s delivery included 79 bottles of water, freeze dried food, soup, 900 tea bags, coffee, cakes and biscuits.

“I wanted to do something to help our colleagues over the border. What they have been through is so tragic and they deserved to be thanked for everything they did. The staff were really shocked that I had thought of them” added Amanda.

Richard Hunter, Ambulance Operations Manager said for Lincolnshire said "Amanda demonstrated great kindness towards fellow colleagues during times of tragedy, it’s the little things that can make staff feel supported and valued"
