Dozens of schoolchildren had the chance to view Wiltshire Air Ambulance up-close when it landed in their playing field on Wednesday.

A school spokesperson said it was “very exciting for all the children and staff”.
The air ambulance – supported by a critical care car – were responding to a serious medical emergency at a private address nearby at around 11am on 4 November.
“Wiltshire Air Ambulance was called to an incident in Chippenham at 10:52am on Wednesday 4 November. We attended in both our helicopter and Rapid Response Vehicle (RRV), landing G-WLTS at King’s Lodge Primary School”, a spokesperson for the charity said.
Adding: “Pupils from the school came out to see the helicopter, always keeping a safe social distance, with our chief pilot Matt Wilcock able to answer their questions.
“We thank King’s Lodge Primary School for their kind hospitality.”
