    Where on earth did the air ambulance land. Totally built up! Poor man.

    It landed in the road in Church Road in front of St Andrew’s Church with not much room for error.

    Cripes! They must have some kind of amazing pilot. Astounded. I have grave fears for landing (in our windy town) on top of the Kemp Tower at RSCH when they redevelop and put in a pad.

    Ever the hack, I must ask: is there a photo!
