A helicopter pilot who died in a crash in central London that claimed the life of one other person and injured several others has been named by sources as Pete Barnes.
Mr Barnes, who piloted helicopters in action scenes in movies Die Another Day, Tomb Raider II and Saving Private Ryan, worked for flight operator RotorMotion.
The helicopter spun out of control and crash-landed after the pilot attempted to divert the aircraft to a helipad due to bad weather.
The helicopter clipped a crane on top of one of Europe's tallest residential towers, falling from the sky before exploding into flames and crashing into the streets below.
It is believed that the aircraft was on a commercial flight from Redhill, in Surrey, to Elstree.
