Yes, we have the power; LICHFIELD.

STAFFORDSHIRE Ambulance Service's emergency power back-up systems have been put to the test - and passed with flying colours.

The trust has revealed that during two unexpected power failures in Lichfield its emergency power system had to be deployed at its Lichfield ambulance depot last week.

In one case the power was interrupted for more than two hours.

But the standby system worked "efficiently", according to trust estates manager Ken Tillett.

He said: "I'm pleased that the power backup system worked so efficiently.

"It is vital that at each trust depot there must be no real interruption in the provision of power. Standby emergency generator facilities have been installed at each location.

"Throughout the power out, standby emergency diesel powered generator was successful."
