Police have named a man who was killed when a helicopter hit a crane and crashed in Vauxhall during this morning's rush hour. He was Matthew Wood, who was 39 and from Sutton.
The pilot, Peter Barnes, was also killed. Ronke Phillips spoke to eyewitnesses who saw the drama unfold.
The pilot of the helicopter which crashed had thousands of hours of flying experience including for films such as Die Another Day.
The crane operator only survived the Vauxhall helicopter crash because he was running late and had not reached his cabin.
Air investigators will seek answers to a series of key questions as they begin their inquiry into the London helicopter crash today.
