A Suffolk MP has demanded the Government pledge emergency cash to solve an ambulance crisis which whistleblowers claim has killed scores across the region.

Ipswich MP Sandy Martin said the National Health Service is “simply not getting enough money” and warned that more people are likely to suffer unless the Government plugs a multi-billion funding blackhole.

The call came after a whistleblower claimed at least 40 people across the East of England region had died due to late ambulances during a period of high demand over the Christmas period.
