Weather warning from Trust

Residents in the Pocklington and district area are being urged to take extra care when wintry weather hits the region.

With hazardously icy conditions and freezing temperatures expected, Yorkshire Ambulance Service NHS Trust is asking people to keep themselves and others safe when they are out and about, and to only call 999 for an ambulance in an absolute emergency when it is obvious that someone has a serious or life-threatening illness or injury.

The Trust says that it was already very busy before the adverse weather arrived and is continuing to receive a very high volume of 999 calls for seasonal illnesses and incidents.
