Emergency services staff on duty will be fast tracked at the Ripon McDonald's and an independent sandwich shop in the city, thanks to a Knaresborough woman whose Facebook post went viral.

Gail Carpenter, 51, took to social media on Monday night to share her frustration after she saw a paramedic abandon her place in a long queue at Ripon McDonald’s when her pager went off.
