Alexis Keech, environmental and sustainability manager for Yorkshire Ambulance Service,  released ion a statement that every time the engines are not placed on "tick over" for an hour, a gallon of fuel could be saved.

"We have rapid-response vehicles situated in strategic places around the region at certain times, which help us respond to Category A or life-threatening incidents within eight minutes," she added.

If the trial proves to be successful, then work could begin after June to equip all ambulances owned by the trust with the technology.
