'Sooner or later someone is going to lose their life' Patients slam private ambulance service

Shambolic. That's how patients have described a new private ambulance transport service being used by the NHS across Sussex.

Dozens of patients - including some with cancer - say they've been let down with two hour delays, missed appointments and even operations.

The provider Coperforma only took over the service seven weeks ago but protesters are already calling for their contract to be terminated.

David Cameron and George Osborne are in Hampshire today where they warned that quitting the European Union would plunge Britain into a year-long recession.

The Prime Minister and Chancellor have been visiting the B&Q headquarters in Chandler's Ford.

The country would suffer an "immediate and profound" economic shock following a vote to leave, according to Treasury analysis released by the Chancellor ahead of the EU referendum in one month today.

It shows that economic growth would be at least 3.6% lower following a Brexit win in the June 23 referendum but could plummet as much as 6%.
