Emergency air ambulance doctor Tony Bleetman and his crew HeliMed 999 never know where their work will take them. The only thing they can be sure of is: every second counts.

Whether they are being dropped into the middle of a maximum security jail to deal with a fatal onion allergy or pelted by golf balls while tending to a heart attack victim at a country club; they are the first on the scene in the most critical of medical emergencies.

You Can't Park There! is the first ever behind-the-scenes account of life on board an air ambulance, the UK's first to carry a qualified trauma team. Crammed full of unbelievable stories; it sees their helicopter take to the skies through thunderstorms, over dangerous mountain terrain and land everywhere from allotments to the middle of the M1 in a bid to save lives.

Drug addicts, castrations, lorry crashes, open-heart surgery, stab wounds, headless chickens, mating llamas, barrel rolls and strip routines -- it's all in a day's work for Tony and the crew. But no matter how bleak a situation the endless wit and camaraderie sees them through, making this gripping read one that will make you laugh, cry and marvel at the wonders of life (and death) in equal measure.
