A sneak peek into a day in the life at the region's ambulance service is set to be revealed when it runs its latest 24-hour Twitter-thon.

The first ever event of its kind took place during 2015's 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 .

And now, members of the public will catch a glimpse at the pressures faced during the summer.

Tweets will start rolling from 7.00am in Waveney, and will include input from an A&E crew, the patient transport service, an early interventions vehicle, fleet, a community first responder and will then go through the night shift with Bedford EOC.

Read all the tweets - and see all the photos - as they come in here from 7am today, Thursday.
