Cornwall Air Ambulance has landed at its new home for the first time.

Crews have moved to Newquay Airport.

It still means that it can get to any part of the Duchy inside twenty minutes.

Newquay airport MD Al Titterington said, "Obviously it provides a very, very valuable service to the communities and to Cornwall as a whole in responding to RTAs around the county. The location of Newquay gives them the optimum opportunity to respond to all parts of the county".

It costs £1.6 million a year to keep it flying. You can make a donation to help this vital service here.

Chief Executive Paula Martin has this funding plea: "That's really quite tough raising that each year. But the thing is, Cornwall has just got such a generous, giving public and they have helped us to keep flying over the last twenty-five years. Not a single emergency mission would've been flown without them".
