An inquest into the death of a Cumbrian businessman, who died in a helicopter crash, has heard that he could not have survived the accident.
Mark Weir, who owner the Honister Slate Mine in the Lake District, was killed while flying home in March 2011.
The pathologist's report said he died from severe multiple injuries.
The inquest has also been told that he had nearly crashed previously when the helicopter nose-dived in thick cloud on a trip to the North East but his skill had saved him and his partner.
