Ambulance

Series 2

Episode 8

Duration: 58 minutes

First broadcast: on BBC One Scotland HDLatest broadcast: on BBC One Northern Ireland HD

The final episode of the series has the inside story of how paramedics dealt with the fatal consequences of Storm Doris, which killed four people across the UK. In the control room they are fielding a third more calls than normal, caused by a surge in wind-related injuries. The reasons for these calls range from a fallen tree that has trapped three people in a car, to a 94-year-old who has been blown over feeding the birds. With wind speeds reaching over 60mph, the air ambulance has been grounded, and they face an agonisingly long journey by road to reach those affected. Show less
