The number of ambulance calls across the southwest has sparked a Christmas drink-drive campaign.

South Western Ambulance Service is handling almost 2,500 shouts a day in the run up to Christmas.

Now 'Festive Spirit' is urging drivers to think about the consequences of things like alcohol and speeding.

The Trust's Medical Director, Dr Andy Smith said: "It is not about pointing the finger and telling people how to behave. This campaign is concerned with encouraging people to think about the potential impact that their behaviour has on others.

"Each year the Trust attends thousands of incidents where the patient's injuries were entirely preventable. We all lead busy lives - the festive period being one of the busiest times of the year socially.

"People just need to take simple steps in order to make informed decisions, like drive at reduced speeds in poor weather conditions for example. By following simple steps lives will be saved and serious injury can be avoided.

"We wish all residents and visitors to the region a happy, safe and healthy festive period."
