Hampshire and Isle of Wight air ambulance criticised for 4am emergency flight
A MEMBER of the public complained about the Hampshire and Isle of Wight air ambulance waking residents with nighttime mercy missions.
The complaint, which was shared by the charity on Twitter, said it was "inconsiderate" to fly at 4am over residential properties, waking occupants.
The person, whose identification and location has not been revealed, added they would no longer donate to the charity.
A spokesperson for the air ambulance responded: "We always try our best to be there for the people of Hampshire and the Isle of Wight but messages like this really affect our team's morale.
"We are sorry the helicopter wakes people up at nights, but it is not our intention to interrupt your evening but rather save someone's life."
