Arthur was born premature and the emergency service quickly transported him between hospitals, with the team earning high praise from Jessica.

Arthur, who is now five, is accompanying Jessica during part of her challenge.

Jessica said: “I’m aiming to complete 300 miles and raise £300 for the Children’s Air Ambulance.

“The charity is close to my heart because my son Arthur was born premature and the emergency services used the air ambulance to take him from Hull to Scarborough hospital so it was safer and quicker for him.

“The service we received from the team was amazing. They let us know as soon as they arrived to which was a great relief.

“We are forever thankful for all the help we received.

“Arthur, who is five, is doing some of the miles with me.”
