No Air Ambulance for 3 weeks in London

London will be without an air ambulance for three weeks while the service sends its only helicopter away for its annual service. 

New European regulations mean that the aircraft previously used for back-up will not be allowed to take to the air. 

This means some of the 160 patients that are aided in one month, may be unreachable.

Graham Hodgkin, chief executive of the air ambulance service, joined Headline London to discuss.
