'Ambulance drone' takes to the skies

A Belgian student is seeking sponsors to get his prototype "ambulance drone" off the ground.

The airborne medical kit can be flown to the scene of an emergency without the risk of traffic delays.

It travels at speeds of up to 100km/h (60mph).

Alec Momont says the precious minutes it saves could mean the difference between life or death.

He came up with the design while studying at Delft University of Technology.

The 23-year-old has been showing Anna Holligan the "ambulance drone" in action.
