The public have been invited to take a sneak peek into the life of the region's ambulance service with its second 24-hour Twitterthon.


The first ever event of its kind took place last year on 'Black Friday', when the East of England Ambulance Service (EEAST) tweeted live for 24 hours from around the region during one of the busiest days and nights of the year for emergency services due to Christmas parties and nights-out .

Tweets have been rolling out from 7.30am highlighting the work of staff and volunteers, and the type and sheer volume of 999 calls the service receives.

You can follow the Twitterthon in the window on this page.
