Mystery still surrounds a helicopter crash in Ely in Cambridgeshire last year which killed an experienced pilot.

A report by the Air Accident Investigation Branch said the two-seater aircraft crashed last January after the rotor blades separated from the helicopter.

They have yet to establish what caused the blades to fall away, but said one possibility is a build up of ice.
