Was weather a factor in Afghanistan helicopter crash?

The preliminary results of an investigation into a fatal helicopter crash in Afghanistan will probably be announced very soon, according to a defence analyst and former helicopter pilot.

Paul Beaver said the helicopter was probably a Lynx Mk9, which has an exceptional record.

He said experts would probably investigate whether the crash was weather-related.
