The Duke of Cambridge had a quiet first day in his new job as an air ambulance pilot - although he admitted he was experiencing first-day jitters.

After clocking in at 7am with the East Anglian Air Ambulance based at Cambridge Airport, there was little time to settle in as William and his crew-mates were dispatched on their first emergency call-out at 9.20am.

However, it did not turn out to be as serious as first expected and the crew was quickly stood down.

Earlier, William told reporters: "It's my first day and I'm feeling the nerves."

There have been growing calls for a similar service in Northern Ireland in the wake of the death of motorcycling medic Dr John Hinds, who led the campaign for an air ambulance here.
