North West Air Ambulance trials new helicopter

A third helicopter has been added to the North West Air Ambulance fleet for a trial period.

It is hoped it will become a permanent addition operating out of Barton Aerodrome, Greater Manchester and will also serve Merseyside.

The charity, which has flown more than 11,000 missions since it was formed in 1999, raises about £6m a year to operate.
