reviewed as this progresses. A mother has been describing the

chaos that surrounded the last moments of her teenager daughter's

:02:50.:02:51.

life. Elouise Keeling collapsed with breathing problems during a cadet's

:02:52.:02:54.

day at an RAF base in Cambridgeshire last summer. She'd suffered an

:02:55.:02:57.

asthma attack. An ambulance was called but went to the wrong

:02:58.:03:02.

location. But by the time it arrived it was too late. Struggling to

:03:03.:03:09.

breathe, Ellie Keeling, aged 14 said she was going to die. People

:03:10.:03:14.

with her told her not to panic, an ambulance was on the way. It wasn't.

:03:15.:03:17.

In the middle is her mum, who moments before, she had called for

:03:18.:03:20.

help. "I can't breathe, I can't walk," she told her. When Karen

:03:21.:03:24.

Keeling saw her daughter, she was gasping for air, lying on her back.

:03:25.:03:27.

"No, that's Wyton," she heard someone say. "This is Brampton"

:03:28.:03:30.

That was Michael Smith, the cadet leader, then 18, who dialled 99 .

:03:31.:03:33.

"They asked me for a postcode," he told the inquest. "I looked it up on

:03:34.:03:39.

my phone". "That shows RAF Brampton and RAF Wyton," he said they told

:03:40.:03:42.

him. "We're at RAF Brampton," he said, "in the village of Brampton".

:03:43.:03:46.

At 7:48, he called for an ambulance, but it was sent to Wyton, ten miles

:03:47.:03:50.

away. At 8:10, the second ambulance arrives at the right location, but

:03:51.:03:54.

at 9:13, the inquest was told, Ellie Keeling was pronounced dead. Behind

:03:55.:04:02.

her colleague is Suzanne Truston, who took the emergency call. She was

:04:03.:04:06.

based in Norfolk, and didn't know that area, she told the inquest

:04:07.:04:09.

"Would identifying a road name have been better"? She was asked. "In

:04:10.:04:15.

hindsight, definitely," she said. An ambulance was first sent from

:04:16.:04:18.

Huntington, a couple of miles or so from where Ellie was, but when the

:04:19.:04:23.

crew queried if they were going to Brampton or Wyton, they were stood

:04:24.:04:26.

down. The coroner said sadly another crew, closer to Wyton, were sent

:04:27.:04:34.

instead. Ellie Keeling was described today as popular and bubbly, a young

:04:35.:04:39.

lady with everything to live for. Tomorrow, at her inquest, more

:04:40.:04:50.

evidence will be heard how she died. Bosses at Northampton General

department. All non`emergency operations have been cancelled and

:04:56.:04:58.

the Chief Executive says it's having a knock`on effect on other services

:04:59.:05:04.

too. Our reporter Waseem Mirza joins me now with the latest. What is the

:05:05.:05:13.

hospital saying tonight? Northampton General Hospital has told us it has

:05:14.:05:17.

cancelled all nonemergency operations, things like knee and hip

:05:18.:05:21.

replacements and hernia repairs This is because of the amount of

:05:22.:05:26.

people coming in for emergency treatment. In the past week, more

:05:27.:05:31.

than 1800 people have attended A, that is up more than 7% on last

:05:32.:05:41.

year. The hospital is now warning of the possibility of further

:05:42.:05:44.

cancellations in the coming days. How have the hospital found

:05:45.:05:49.

themselves in this position? The chief executive told us it is down

:05:50.:05:53.

to an increase OnDemand on its services which is affecting their

:05:54.:05:58.

ability to see, treat and discharge patients as quickly as possible

:05:59.:06:02.

More patients are being admitted because they are struggling to find

:06:03.:06:06.

medical services in their own communities. What is the advice to

:06:07.:06:11.

patients? If you are waiting for an operation, you will be contacted by

:06:12.:06:16.

the hospital if there are any changes. Meanwhile they are urging

:06:17.:06:22.

people to call their GP, pharmacists or the nonemergency helpline, 1 1.

:06:23.:06:27.

In football ` just two of our teams were in action tonight. In League

:06:28.:06:36.

One, Stevenage drew 1`1 game away to Crawley. Elsewhere Peterborough

:06:37.:06:38.

faced Sheffield at Brammell Lane. Final score was 2`0.

:06:39.:06:41.

That's all from the late team, now let's get the weather.

:06:42.:06:48.

We had a frost last night and we are likely to have a frost tonight as

:06:49.:06:55.

temperatures are diving under clear skies. Many places will get close to

:06:56.:07:00.

freezing if not low as we get towards tomorrow morning. If you

:07:01.:07:05.

wake up early you may experience mist and fog patches first thing.

:07:06.:07:11.

But they should clear fairly quickly and then there should be sunny

:07:12.:07:17.

spells. For the afternoon there will be patchy cloud at times, but it

:07:18.:07:21.

should stay dry. In a moment, we will have the National forecast but

:07:22.:07:27.

I will leave you with my out look. Thursday is dry with sunny spells.

:07:28.:07:31.

By Friday, a week will stay miles into the weekend.

:07:32.:07:34.

And with more on that, here is the National forecast.

:07:35.:07:39.

Good evening. The skies across England and Wales are clearing. It

:07:40.:07:45.

will turn cold once again. A different story for Scotland and

:07:46.:07:52.

Northern Ireland. But ahead of that, the skies are clearing for England

:07:53.:07:56.

and Wales. It will turn cold, so we will start tomorrow with a frost and

:07:57.:08:03.

will also be some fog around. The frost will set in, getting down to

:08:04.:08:08.

three below in rural spots. It is not until the latter part of the

:08:09.:08:11.

night where we will see the fog thickening up. All while, the wind

:08:12.:08:15.

is increasing. And
