An offshore helicopter has been brought back to land by sea after concerns were raised about fuel samples.

The Super Puma, operated by CHC, had been refuelled on board a North Sea platform.

Fuel samples were "unsatisfactory" and the decision was made to bring the aircraft back by the offshore vessel Island Express as a "precaution".

CHC said the helicopter would be subjected to rigorous engineering checks before returning to service.
