Brother's tribute to helicopter crash victim

The brother of a man who was killed when a helicopter crashed to the ground after hitting a crane in central London says he was a "doting uncle".

Darren Wood's brother, Matthew, died in the London helicopter crash last week. Matthew Wood worked at pest control firm Rentokil and was killed on his way to the office as a result of severe burns.

Darren Wood told BBC Radio 2's Jeremy Vine that his brother was a doting uncle. He said that the fact that Matthew had died in such unlikely circumstances made him feel that his brother had been "picked" to go.

The Jeremy Vine Show is broadcast Monday to Friday at 12:00 BST on BBC Radio 2. Or listen again via the link.
