Investigator 'hopeful' of finding bodies of R116 crew

The Chief Inspector with the Air Accident Investigation Unit, Jurgen Whyte, has said search teams hope to find the bodies of three missing crewmen after they located the wreckage of a helicopter that crashed off the Mayo coast last week.

Jurgen Whyte told Irish broadcaster, RTÉ, they would have to wait for a "weather window" to recover the wreck, which is 40m down on the seabed.
