Agreed - I have a colleague who is heavily involved with the Local air ambulance and the figures are staggering: £3.5 every time the crew is scrambled (even if the heli doesn't take off), nearer to £7k for every hour in the air and limited in-service lifetime of the heli itself after which it has to be scrapped. If the costs for the police are similar then you have to consider that this is one heck of an expense to chase several chavs in a Mk2 Escort
