'London at risk' over ambulance service proposals

The London Ambulance Service (LAS) has said it expects to make 890 job cuts over the next five years as part of an attempt to reduce costs.

The LAS, which is trying to save £53m over five years, said 300 staff left each year so most reductions should come from "natural wastage".

Unison's regional organiser, Phil Thompson, told the BBC that people living in the capital and those coming to the London Olympics will be put at risk.
