Ditching helicopter brought ashore

An offshore helicopter which ditched in the sea off Shetland after pilots feared there was a problem with its gearbox has been winched ashore.

All 19 people on board the Super Puma were rescued after the incident in the North Atlantic on Monday afternoon.

Manufacturer Eurocopter said the crew had reported that their control panel indicated a possible fault with the oil and lubrication system.

Footage shows the damaged helicopter being lowered onto a rig in the north east of Scotland early on Wednesday.
