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.
