THREE helicopters used by Midlands Air Ambulance that were grounded for safety fears are now back in service.

Bond Air Services had suspended flights on all EC 135s - the same model that crashed into a pub in Glasgow, killing 10 people - after a fault was found.

The ambulance service confirmed helicopters based in Worcestershire and Shropshire had been cleared to fly from Sunday, December 15.

A spokesperson for the service said there were no major reported incidents while the helicopters were grounded.

Midlands Air Ambulance has bases at RAF Cosford in Shropshire, Strensham services on the M5 in Worcestershire and at Tatenhill airfield.
