Aviation expert: helicopter crash is 'perplexing'

Aviation expert Paul Beaver has been talking to ITV News. He said "It's a very perplexing case. You have a very sophisticated helicopter with very well trained crew at the top of their game, flying on a night when the weather isn't particularly bad,

"It's blustery but not out of the limits of the helicopter, and doing something tat it was built to do which is fly at very low level at night."
