Bowman drive

Incident 19 - Saturday 11th April 2020 16:24hrs Just as we had all put the vehicles back in to their home locations, we received another call for an ambulance assist to Yorkshire Ambulance Service in Sheffield to assist with a casualty who had fallen from their bike off the road and needed a distance to be transported back to the ambulance.
