Another ambulance broke down yesterday, one day after the head of the Fire Services Department conceded that some of its ambulances had a serious ageing problem and it was looking to accelerate the fleet's upgrade. The vehicle was on its way to an ambulance depot when the engine stopped in the Kai Tak Tunnel and could not be restarted. It had to be towed away.
