London's Air Ambulance is trying to raise £4.4 million to buy a second helicopter.

Currently the capital has only one emergency helicopter, which was unavailable for 55 days last year due to maintenance.

£1.6 million has already been raised and the money would help to extend daylight flying hours for the next five years.

Closure of tube ticket offices has begun


The closure of London Underground ticket office windows has begun.

Queensway and South Wimbledon will no longer offer the service from this morning.

Transport for London says the move will allow staff to help travellers more easily as they are brought from behind the counter. However, Some unions dispute the change.
