About 15 new volunteer recruits took part in the training at the weekend.

NARS chairman Chris Neil said: 'This course was a great success and brings the charity one step closer towards providing critical care around the clock.'

He appealed for people to make donations to support NARS, a charity which was formed in 1970 to help increase the level of medical expertise at life-threatening incidents.

'It will take us about four to five years to highly train the new NARS clinicians before they can attend life threatening emergencies alone, and this equates to £8,000 per person,' he said.
