A special ambulance which will take terminally ill hospital patients home to die is to start operating in Leeds.
The vehicle has been fitted with equipment such as a pressure-relieving mattress, reclining chair and room for a companion.
It is aimed at taking patients to their preferred place of care as they approach the end of their life.
It has been funded by Marie Curie Cancer Care as part of a national scheme of palliative care services.
The vehicle is also fitted with specialist medical equipment and will be operated by two trained care assistants.
The Yorkshire Ambulance Service is operating the new vehicle, which also transfers patients to and from treatment.
