New night-flying air ambulance for the East of England

The East Anglian Air Ambulance has been given the go-ahead to start flying at night.

The charity, which covers, Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire, Suffolk and Norfolk, started night flights this week after getting the final go-ahead from the Civil Aviation Authority.

It follows an 18-month campaign to be allowed to fly during the hours of darkness.
