Devon's air ambulance aims for night flights

They're the lifesavers that currently only operate in the daytime. The Devon Air Ambulance service responds to emergencies within minutes - but their two helicopters are currently NOT allowed to fly at night.

That could mean no rescues are possible after four o'clock in the winter.

The charity that runs the service wants to extend its flying hours - but it needs to raise a million pounds to fund it.
