Tonight we follow the North West Ambulance Service as they tackle emergencies on the busiest day so far last winter.

During this episode emergency doctor Ian and paramedic Rob dealing with a motorcycle accident, while call handler Joe takes a call from a patient threatening to use a hand grenade. At one point, so many calls a coming through to 999 that the team have to implement an “emergency disconnect”, which is only enacted when more than ten calls are waiting to be answered.
