Flying high: London’s Air Ambulance 25 years old today

LONDON’S Air Ambulance service, which has been dispatched to more than 30,000 critically injured people in the capital, celebrates 25 years of service today.

It is now seeking help to acquire a second helicopter and to recruit additional pilots and fire crew to extend its daylight flying hours in the summer months.

“I urge people living in our City to support this vital cause so that they may continue to save lives for many years to come,” said Mayor of London Boris Johnson. Visit www. londonsairambulance.co.uk/donate
