The Dublin Airport Authority has voiced regret after an ambulance waiting for a seriously injured patient was clamped by airport police.
The privately-run ambulance was clamped on Saturday despite being parked in a section reserved for emergency crews.
An airport spokeswoman said the incident was 'deeply regrettable' and promised a policy review.
Paramedics had to use a cash machine to pay for the clamp's removal. Their boss said the clamping was 'mind-blowing'.
The airport said it would refund the clamping charge of 63 euros (�43; $82)."
