Work begins on hospital helipad

The largest crane in Europe has been put up in South London, as work begins on a new helipad for a hospital in Tooting.

St George's will become the second hospital in the capital to have an emergency landing pad.

It will give victims of major trauma - like road accidents, falls and stabbings - faster access to potentially life-saving treatment.
