RAF Valley's search and rescue team is busiest in UK

A team based at RAF Valley on Anglesey have been named as the UK's busiest search and rescue helicopter unit in the UK, for the second year running.

Number 22 Squadron's C Flight was scrambled 323 times in 2013, helping 298 people.

RAF Search and Rescue Force Commander, Group Capt Sara Mackmin, said she was "incredibly proud".

Prince William flew with the team before he left Anglesey last year and took part in some of the missions.
