West Midlands Ambulance Service (WMAS) has suspended Edge while investigating the allegations.

Eighteen years of paramedics have strongly denied cheating and believe that internal investigations will reveal his name.

One source told The Sun: “We are all waiting for the results of our investigation.

“Steve is categorically doing nothing wrong and the truth will disappear.

“I heard rumors that his stationmaster marked himself positive with a pencil and started the investigation, but nothing has been proven yet.

“Given the tensions we all receive as a service, we are incredibly selfish and seriously hope not.”

The edge was interrupted earlier this month as the NHS processed the height of the third wave.

West Midlands is one of the most devastated areas, with both Sandwell and Wolverhampton in the top five areas with the highest rates last week.

WMAS experienced the busiest day on record on January 4, with 4,383 calls in 24 hours. The previous high in March 2018 was 4,001 calls.

When The Sun approaches, Edge of Brown Edge, Staffs. Confirmed that he was stopped.

“I can’t say anything else,” he added.

WMAS states: “We are aware of allegations about staff members.

“West Midlands Ambulance Service expects its staff to have the highest standards and is fully investigating the situation.”
