Film star Ray Winstone has called for public support in the building of a new Air Ambulance base for a Hertfordshire charity.

Ray, the celebrity patron of Essex & Herts Air Ambulance, posted a video urging the public to: ‘‘Buy a brick or two or ten’’ as part of the charity’s ‘Buy a brick’ appeal.

Four virtual bricks are available, ranging from £10 to £100 and funds will go towards the building of the new base.

The bricks will form part of the walkway to the helicopter viewing area.

Pam Withrington, of EHAAT, described the new airbase as: "a vital part of securing the future of our lifesaving service for the people of Essex and Hertfordshire.”
