A life-saving new scheme has been launched in Cumbria.
Blood Bikes will see volunteer motorcyclists providing free out of hours transport for blood and medical supplies.
Blood transportation is an expensive business.
In Cumbria alone 700 units of blood are used a month across our hospitals, that equates to 23 units a day.
Hospitals in our region also transport between their sites four or five times a week, with two or three of these urgent transfers.
Now anyone with a motorbike licence and a willingness to learn could help.
Our reporter Fiona McIlwraith reports on how having Blood Bikes in our region will be a massive benefit for our hospitals.
