Ambulance response times under the spotlight

Ambulance response times are back under the spotlight after two separate incidents in this region.

In the most recent case a heart attack victim in Sheringham in Norfolk was left waiting for more than three hours and in Ely in Cambridgeshire a motorcyclist was taken to hospital by his brother after an ambulance didn't turn up at all.

The East of England Ambulance Service has to make 50 million pounds worth of savings over five years. They say they'll do this without cutting ambulance crews, but is the service already at its limit?
