The British Army has been drafted to help the Welsh Ambluance Service cope as they are under “extreme pressure” in Wales.

From Wednesday soldiers will assist ambulances by driving them as the country are fighting the second wave of coronavirus.

Last week First Minister Mark Drakeford was forced to take immediate action and place the whole of Wales back into a full lokdown amid the new variant of Covid.

Chief Executive Jason Killens of the Welsh Ambulance Service said, “The extreme pressure on our ambulance service in the last couple of weeks has been well documented, and it’s why we’ve taken the decision to re-enlist the military, who did a superb job of assisting us earlier in the year.

“Winter is our busiest period, and with the second wave of a global pandemic also to contend with, this is about bolstering our capacity as far we can and putting us in the best possible position to provide a safe service to the people of Wales.”
