Two men died after their helicopter, which was en route to Retford, crashed off the East coast yesterday (Tuesday 16th September).

The helicopter was due to refuel at Humberside Aiport before continuing on to Retford but crashed into the sea near Flamborough Head.

Witnesses at the scene heard a low ‘crack’ as the helicopter descended behind the cliffs and crashed.

Despite a rescue operation involving air sea rescue and the coastguard, police confirmed that the bodies of the two men were recovered from the aircraft shortly after 5pm.
