After the horrific news on Friday of a sat-nav being stolen from an Ambulance in New Basford, we have replaced the sat-nav for them. The Ambulance Service does an incredible job and their work has touched so many of our lives.

A NOTTINGHAM business has stepped in to help East Midlands Ambulance Service after hearing that thieves stole a sat-nav from one of its vehicles.
The specialised navigation equipment – which cannot be used inside a normal vehicle – was taken from an ambulance outside a New Basford home on Friday between 9pm and 10pm.
Paramedics were treating a patient at the time it happened.
Steve Bates, of Midland Regional Printers Ltd, in Basford, has now given EMAS a £400 donation so that it can buy a replacement sat-nav.
Mr Bates said: “My son is a paramedic, so I know how hard staff in the ambulance service work. When I heard about the theft, I was really annoyed that someone could be so selfish. I wanted to help and was more than happy to replace such an essential piece of kit.”
