Foggy weather meant that children at a village school missed out on the excitement of a visit by the air ambulance.

Pupils at Little Gonerby School have been learning about emergency services and had been looking forward to the Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire Air Ambulance dropping in at the school earlier this month.

However, poor visibility prevented the visit but class teacher Sarah Preece, who organised the day, is hoping to arrange for the ambucopter to call at a later date.

She said: “We are hoping it will be able to come after the Easter holidays, when the weather should be better.”

But all was not lost. Emma Young, Lincolnshire fund-raiser for the air ambulance, and paramedic Roger Linnell did visit the school to talk to the children about the service and show them the equipment used by the paramedics. They are pictured with pupils. Photo: 019D
