Norfolk helicopter crash: Investigation under way

An investigation is under way into the cause of a helicopter crash in Norfolk which killed four people, including Northern Ireland peer and industrialist Lord Ballyedmond.

The helicopter came down in a field near his stately home in Gillingham, near Beccles, on Thursday evening.

It is not known what caused the crash but witnesses reported fog in the area at the time and said the helicopter came down very soon after taking off at about 19:30 GMT.

A spokesman for the Air Accidents Investigation Branch said it would be sending a team to the area.
