The Air Ambulance arrived in Brookside today. Judging by the number of people congregated on the field behind the Windmill School it was the most exciting event of the year so far. It's a shame nobody had a collection bucket with them, they could have collected plenty in donations for the Air Ambulance (click here to donate to the Air Ambulance).
Somebody on Facebook said that the Air Ambulance came for a young child who had their finger torn off although we didn't see anybody get loaded into the Air Ambulance so that may just be the extremely efficient Brookside rumour mill at work!
Here are some pictures and a video of the Air Ambulance for those of you who missed it:
