The BBC documentary series continued on Wednesday (September 23) evening, giving viewers an insight into the efforts of London Ambulance Service staff.

In last night’s episode, they geared themselves up to deal with the inevitable fallout of another day of intense politics in the capital, where hundreds of thousands of people were taking to the streets for protests.
