A DRUNK man got out of an ambulance on a motorway before abusing staff, police say.

The bizarre incident reportedly happened on the M27 and involved Hampshire Police and South Central Ambulance Service.

Police wrote on social media: "First job of the night, assisting South Central Ambulance Service with a drunk male who decided to get out of the ambulance on the M27 and was then abusive to staff, before walking off.

"No-one deserves to be abused at work, especially not our hard-working ambulance staff."
