Two helicopters operated by the East Anglian Air Ambulance service have been cleared to take off again following a safety scare.

The Eurocopter 135s were taken out of service yesterday after a defect was found in rotor hubs on three other aircrafts.

Although there were no faults with the rotor hub on either of the East Anglian Air Ambulance helicopters, they were grounded as a precaution.

Ambulance bosses say the helicopters started flying again at 7am this morning.
