Hundreds of people were allowed back to their homes in St George's Wharf Tower last night, after the authorities said the area was safe following yesterday's helicopter crash.
The damaged crane on the side of the tower is not at risk of collapse, and work to remove it will begin on the weekend. Some road closures in the area remain in place.
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.
