No magic bullet to fix 999 delays, says ambulance chief

Ambulance response times for the most urgent calls in Wales are the worst on record, new figures show.

The proportion of ambulances hitting the target response time of eight minutes for the most urgent calls fell well below half in December.

The target for responding to Category A calls is 65% - but in December it was just 42.6%.

Tracy Myhill, interim chief executive at the Welsh Ambulance Service, told Hywel Griffiths that the figures were unacceptable but there was "no magic bullet".
