Over the last few years millions have come to Yorkshire to enjoy the Tour-De-Yorkshire. However for the emergency services it is just another day at the office
Every year the tour gets a visit from two French ambulances who are provided by the organising company.
West Yorkshire Police and the Central Escort group have developed a rolling road block scheme that seeks to get the balance between keeping the roads safe and not having roads closed for to long a period
The Central Escort group draws it staff from all over the country, I have seen motorcycles from Devon and Cornwall, British Transport Police, Essex and Norfolk
The Ambulance service provide a number of motorcycle paramedics for the event
