The East of England Ambulance Service is urging the public not to call 999 unless it is absolutely necessary during the current hot weather.
The service has been receiving up to 200 calls an hour over the last few days.
They mostly involve elderly people or those with underlying health issues suffering with heatstroke or dehydration.
They are under huge pressure to respond to the big rise and demand.
However, whilst we are able to respond, we urge the public to please think before they dial 999 and use our services wisely and look at other alternatives that they could use before dialling 999.
A record number of volunteers have signed up to become community first responders for the East of England Ambulance service.Read the full story ›
