Dunno if you guys are aware, but air ambulances are NOT funded by the government. They are all individual charities, staffed by hospital employees. These guys to a brilliant job, but all too often helicopters are grounded because they simply cannot afford to fly them.
Help out Yorkshire.
VERY VERY good point - and yet the government spends £3million per year for each Police helicopter which seem to spend most of their time chasing stolen cars worth about £300!!! More bobbies on the beat would be FAR better.
I checked on one Police heli website and they proudly boasted how their most successful operation lead to the speedy recovery of a stolen caravan - maybe they should have remained on the ground and bought a new one for the owner - £4000 per hour is quite a bit for us taxpayers to fork out!!!
