Bond has resumed helicopter flights which had been suspended after one of its Super Pumas ditched in the North Sea.

Flights were grounded following the incident last Thursday. All 14 passengers and crew were rescued.

Bond's fleet of 10 helicopters started to return to service on Wednesday morning.

The company earlier said it had completed a rigorous engineering analysis and safety risk assessment.

It has also received assurances from Eurocopter, the gearbox manufacturer.
