New air ambulance takes to the skies

A new air ambulance has taken to the skies over the East of England. The emergency medical charity Magpas officially unveiled its new aircraft on Thursday along with a new training facility for its medics in Cambridgeshire.

The charity says the helicopter, which is able to fly at night, and the training centre in Huntingdon, mean it can now move towards its goal of providing 24-hour cover, seven days a week.
