The Duke of Cambridge has officially started work with the company that operates the East Anglian Air Ambulance service - and is expected to begin flying rescue missions in the summer, Kensington Palace has said.

William, a former RAF search and rescue helicopter pilot, is from today an employee of Bond Air Services, which runs a number of air ambulance and police aviation operations in the UK.

Kensington Palace said in a short statement: "The Duke of Cambridge has today started work as an employee of Bond Air Services.

"Over the coming months he will undertake job-specific training before he begins piloting missions for East Anglian Air Ambulance during the summer.

"The mandatory training will involve simulator, aircraft and in-flight skills training."
