THE Kent, Surrey and Sussex Air Ambulance (KSSAA) is now safely operating its life-saving air ambulance for emergencies. It was grounded last Friday when the Met Office said dust had been detected on the ground in Southern England.

John Tickner, Chief Executive of the Air Ambulance said: "Experts, whose knowledge is far greater than our own have assured us that it is now safe to fly and we will continue to review developments."

When the decision to suspend Air Ambulance flights was taken, the specialist doctors and paramedic team transferred to response cars. They have since responded to a total of 13 emergency medical calls before the decision to resume flights.
