Prince William has been pictured during an air ambulance rescue mission to help a young girl who was hit by a car in Bedfordshire.

The Duke of Cambridge began work as a co-pilot for the East Anglian Air Ambulance in July. He was pictured near the charity's helicopter earlier.

The girl was flown to hospital after being seriously injured when a car ended up on its roof.

Crews were called to Old Road, Leighton Buzzard, at about 15:40 BST.
