A man who marched inside a block of flats to complain about an ambulance obstructing the road has told of his shock at finding his neighbour covered in blood after a “Freddy Krueger” style attack.
Gary Nash, of Woodshire Avenue, Dagenham, was on his way to work on Thursday when he found the emergency vehicle blocking the one-way street.
“I tried to get my car out but couldn’t so I got frustrated,” he admitted.
“I rushed over to the flats where it was parked because I really needed to get to work and there was an open door. An ambulance man popped his head round the corner.”
Gary said he was told there had been a “vicious dog attack” and the people who lived at the property owned Staffordshire bull terriers.

“The guy had been ripped up by the dogs. It was like Freddy Krueger had been there. I think the dogs have problems – I think they’d gone mental.
“The injured guy came staggering out of the bedroom with bandages covering him and there were three ambulance men there trying to help.”
