Have your say

THE air ambulance for the county that had temporarily been suspended is now flying again.

The Hampshire and Isle of Wight Air Ambulance had confirmed there has been a temporary suspension of its flight since yesterday evening.

The suspension had been put in place by Bond Air Services, which has halted all its EC 135 helicopter – the same model which crashed on to The Clutha bar in Glasgow, killing nine people.

The grounding came after a fault was discovered on a EC 135 operated by Bond for the North West Air Ambulance.

But the service has now been given the all-clear to run again.
