Newmarket’s SOS bus celebrated five years of providing support and medical assistance for the town’s later night revellers with a special cake on Saturday.

Eighteen months ago the service was been saved from closure after town charity Newmarket Open Door stepped in when its original backer, the Newmarket Community Partnership folded.

The static which has appeared on the High Street every Saturday night since its launch in October 2009 currently operates in partnership with St John Ambulance, the emergency services, venue staff and the Town Pastors.
