A FURIOUS mother believes her dying teenage son was ‘failed’ by emergency services after he had to wait nearly half an hour for an ambulance to arrive.

Hayden Middleton, 19, of Stanley, died after a collision between his motorbike and a car in Longfield Lane on December 5.

But Mandy Middleton this week blasted emergency services for their handling of the whole incident.

She said that witnesses had described chaotic scenes after Hayden’s collision with the Citroen C1 car, while parents were taking children to nearby Hallam Fields Junior School.
