Ambulance driver hopes petition will speed exoneration

The
ambulance driver at the centre of a speeding prosecution row is presenting a
petition to Downing Street calling on the Government to clarify the laws on
human organ transportation.

The
petition, which has more than 18,000 signatures, was circulated by the GMB
union and officially calls "upon the Government to clarify the law with
regards to the transportation of human organs".

Mike
Ferguson is now facing police prosecution for allegedly speeding while
delivering a life-saving organ from St James Hospital to a waiting transplant
patient in Addenbrookes Hospital, Cambridge on the 16 January.

The
legal action to prosecute Ferguson, who has pleaded not guilty to speeding,
will be heard in Grantham Court. If found guilty he will lose his job.
