Wiltshire's flying ambulance 'at risk'

Paramedics are warning that lives could be lost if Wiltshire's Air Ambulance service cannot raise the money it needs to keep flying.

The county's helicopter is currently shared with the police force - but the constabulary is withdrawing to join another service at the end of next year.

This means the air ambulance needs to raise more than £2million for the service to continue.
