ST JOHN Ambulance is urging businesses to ensure they have adequate first aid cover in the workplace.

It says 79 per cent of firms in the south east have periods when there are no first-aiders on the premises.

The charity says it will carry out training in the workplace if there are eight or more people able to take part.
