Four people have been charged with criminal damage over the vandalism of an ambulance in Borough High Street as England footie fans celebrated their win over Sweden during the World Cup.

Pictures of the trashed ambulance sparked social media outrage and the damage on July 7 forced the emergency vehicle out of service.

Three men and one woman have been charged and are due to appear at Camberwell Magistrates Court on Thursday November 22nd.

Kind-hearted Millwall fans raised almost £10,000 to repair the vehicle.

However at the same time, a ŠKODA dealership offered to repair the vehicle free of charge.

The money raised by fans went towards restoring a historic Morris Wandsworth ambulance, to be displayed at the London Ambulance Service’s (LAS) headquarters in Waterloo.

The four people charged on Tuesday October 16 were: Perry Kangyue Jian, 26 of Poplar, Larissa Bell, 21 of East Kilbride, Glasgow, James Elton, 27 of West Hampstead and Scott Dennett, 25 of Thornton-Cleveleys, Lancashire.

All of them had been previously interviewed under caution.
