A NUMBER OF staff members of the Queen Elizabeth Hospital (QEH) were unpleasantly surprised yesterday when they discovered their car tyres had been punctured.

Some employees were brought to tears as they realised the unknown culprit had slashed all four of their tyres, some of which can cost up to $400 each.

The DAILY NATION understands around seven workers, many from the surgical theatre, had been targeted.

They were parked in the public car park of the hospital, located near the back gate. (CA)
