A nurse on the frontline of the coronavirus crisis has hit out after an angry driver put a threatening note on her car in a row about parking.
The NHS employee had just finished a gruelling 12-hour shift at Royal Stoke University Hospital when she discovered the bit of paper tucked under her windscreen wiper.
A disgruntled motorist had placed it there last Thursday when the rest of the country was clapping the NHS in a national show of gratitude.
But when the nurse went out to her car work, she saw the note, which read in capital letters: ”How f***ing stupid and dangerouse (sic) parking here do it again you will be sorry!!!!!’
She left a scathing response, saying: ‘Whilst most people were out clapping for the NHS, you were writing this.

‘I am a nurse and working long hours in this very stressful time. Please choose your words wisely.
‘Every evening I have arrived home from work this week there has been nowhere for me to park as most people are staying at home.
‘This note has been reported and I ask all of my neighbours to please look out for anyone acting suspicious around my car,
‘This note is shameful in any circumstance but even more so at a time like this.’
The reply was then finished with #bekind.
Zoe Lynch, who also had a copy of the abusive note put through her letter box, said: ‘The sweary and threatening note was stuck on the nurse’s car after she had got home and parked after a 12-hour shift.
‘When she went to go to work the next morning that was on her windscreen.
‘She then went to do another 12-hour shift and wrote up the her reply and put them through the doors of every house on Fenpark Road to let us all know how awful it was and ask if we can keep an eye out for her.
She left a scathing response, saying: ‘Whilst most people were out clapping for the NHS, you were writing this.’
‘With everything that’s going on right now, this is appalling. Parking isn’t great on our street but it ever has been.
‘To have this put on this wonderful nurse’s car when she got home from looking after people just blows my mind.’
One residents said: ‘We have lived on Fenpark Road for 30 years and it has become increasingly difficult to park – sometimes we park in a different street.
‘However, this is despicable. For someone to put this note on a hard-working member of the NHS who is already under a lot of stress working 10 or more hours a day then coming home and can’t even get anywhere near her home.
‘Please can people think before they write such threatening notes.’
Another resident added: ‘Best of it is, the car itself even has an NHS UHNM (University Hospitals of North Midlands) parking pass in the window.
‘I went and checked after I saw the read the letter to acquaint myself with the car.
‘It is tonight parked safely and securely. I don’t know if she or he will read this or not, but if you do, rest assured that you do have some friends in your neighbours in the street.’
