Duran Duran frontman Simon Le Bon backs air ambulance

Duran Duran frontman Simon Le Bon praised the work of the Air Ambulance Service during a visit to its headquarters in Coventry.

He met staff at Bagington Airport as part of his new role as an ambassador for the charity.

The 53-year-old singer said it was vital the service was maintained.

He added that he was keen to help the charity after he was rescued from a capsized yacht during the Fastnet Yacht Race 27 years ago.

The charity provides emergency medical services for Warwickshire, Derbyshire, Northamptonshire, Leicestershire, Rutland and Milton Keynes.
