Dyfed-Powys Police helicopter to remain in service

Fears the Dyfed-Powys Police helicopter would be withdrawn from service have been allayed after it was confirmed it will remain patrolling the skies.

The helicopter, which polices Carmarthenshire, Ceredigion, Pembrokeshire and Powys, will be kept as part of a deal to join the new National Police Air Service (NPAS).

A number of police aircraft will be cut as part of the service.

The force's helicopter will be managed by NPAS from next year.
