'Super hub' plan for ambulances in West Midlands

West Midlands Ambulance Service says it wants to replace its old buildings and build a "super station" in Shropshire.

The plans, which the service said were aimed at efficiency rather than savings, will see a £500,000 central hub built near Shrewsbury.

Older buildings in the region will be updated where possible or replaced by one or more "response posts".

Spokesman Chris Kowalik said the proposals were about "rebuilding" the ambulance service.
