“Ambulances were literally pulled off the road”
The mind boggles. Well mine does.
It figuratively makes my blood boil. :o)
I suspect this actions may have decimated their fleet of ambulances too;-
Actually, if this refers to the "Russian spy" case, I think it _is_
correct, though almost certainly not in the way the reporter meant: I
think I've seen them being pulled onto low-loaders, so that _was_
literal. (But I'd hazard a guess - not having seen the original report -
that she meant "yanked out of service at short notice", rather than the
physical case which happened to be true.)
