Ambulance services in the Midlands have seen a big increase in the number of calls because of the recent heatwave. Last month, West Midlands Ambulance Service dealt with more than 71 thousand.
On one day, they took more calls than on New Year's Eve. Yesterday, as temperatures reached 32 degrees, ITV News Central was with one crew as they responded to emergencies brought about by the hot weather.
ITV News Central would like to pass on thoughts and best wishes to Neil who underwent surgery on his hand yesterday and who gave us permission to film his treatment with the ambulance service.
West Midlands Ambulance saw a massive increase in 999 calls last weekend due to the hot weather, and they're expecting the same this weekend. Last week they had more than 3000 calls.
East Midlands Ambulance Service says their calls are up 15% on what they would expect from an average day.
The Royal Derby Hospital have put their heatwave plan into action - that means cool rooms are available for 'high risk' patients, temperatures are measured four times a day, and extra water is on hand.
