The first of 119 new ambulances, 67 patient transport services vehicles and 40 rapid response vehicles were due to be delivered today to the Welsh Ambulance Service trust.

Two-thirds of the ambulances will be operational this month with the remainder by mid-May. The new fleet is the result of a £16m investment announced by Welsh Assembly government health minister Brian Gibbons last October and will be supported by a further £55m of funding for a new digital communication system.
