Blood Bikers visit 21 hospitals in a day

A volunteer run service that transports blood and essential supplies for the NHS is taking on an ambitious challenge.

The team at Dumfries and Galloway Blood Bikes are taking part in their 'Challenge 21' event, which sees them aim to visit 21 hospitals across Scotland and the North of England in a single day.

Volunteers say events like today's help expand the service.
