Permanent base for air ambulance

The Great North Air Ambulance which serves Cumbria has been given a permanent home.

For three years the local helicopter and crew were based in the grounds of the police headquarters at Carleton Hall, in Penrith.

When a larger aircraft was acquired by the charity its base was moved to Carlisle airport.

On Friday, the helicopter took up residence at its new home at Langwathby in the Eden Valley.
