Norfolk Helicopter Crash: Four Feared Dead, UK

Helicopter Crash

Four people are feared dead after a helicopter crashed in a remote part of Norfolk.

Police said a civilian aircraft with four people on board had crashed in Gillingham, near Beccles, at about 19:30 GMT.

Emergency services remain on scene and a cordon around the site is in place.

It is not yet known what caused the crash but eyewitnesses reported foggy conditions in the area at the time the helicopter came down.

The East of England Ambulance Service NHS Trust said it was called at 19:45 to reports of a helicopter crash.

 

‘Very foggy’

 

In a statement it said: “EEAST sent a number of resources to the incident including two ambulance officers, three ambulances, two doctors and one rapid response car.”

Gillingham is a small village in the south of Norfolk with a population of about 650.

Roland Bronk, owner of The Swan House inn and restaurant in Beccles, said it had been “very foggy” in the area.

Mr Bronk said he had also heard customers talking about “a lot of police activity and ambulances”.

The site is about 45 miles from where four crew members died when a US military helicopter crashed in Norfolk on a training mission in a nature reserve in Cley next the Sea, Norfolk, in January.
