A family have been reunited with the life-saving medics who saved their little girl.

Maisie Moon was in Addenbrooke’s Hospital, Cambridge, for three weeks following a horrific crash in Coggeshall Road, Earls Colne, on September 6.

She survived life threatening injuries thanks to the speed and skill of air ambulance doctors.

Father Dave Moon and three pals, have now set themselves the challenge of cycling 500 miles from Earls Colne to France to raise money for the Essex Air Ambulance and three other charities.

Mum Nicola said: “This is our way of saying thank you to everyone who helped us on that night.

“Maisie is home and getting on really well.”
