Tucked underneath the windscreen wipers is what appears to be notice of a £30 fine.

It was unclear whether paramedics were on an emergency call at the time.

A passer-by posted: “This is an absolute joke...What is this country coming to?

“Question to the Edinburgh Council parking attendant. Would you have put the ticket there if you knew the ambulance was attending a family member of yours?”

The city council and Scottish Ambulance Service have been contacted for comment.
