Quadbike boy 'denied help'

GREEK police have been accused of preventing a medic from helping an Edinburgh teenager as he lay dying after a holiday quad bike crash, it was reported today.

Friends of James Waddell reportedly said police formed a cordon to prevent anyone getting near the 18-year-old after he fell off and was hit by a taxi in Zante early on Sunday morning.

His friend David Boyle, 18, reportedly said:

"A man rushed up saying, 'I'm a medic' – but the cops just smiled."
