'People get into this work for "the juice", meaning the adrenaline rush, but they don't tell you about the other juices - the mud, blood, snot and grot.'

You Can't Park There! is the first ever real life account from an air ambulance doctor. Drug addicts, lorry crashes, open-heart surgery, stab wounds, headless chickens, mating llamas, and strip routines - it's all in a day's work for emergency doctor Tony Bleetman and his air ambulance team.

Whether they are landing their helicopter in the middle of the M1 or at a maximum security jail, Tony and his crew Helimed 999 are the first on the scene in the most critical of emergencies.

This gripping read will make you laugh, cry and marvel at the wonders of life (and death) in equal measure.
