Paul Ferguson, who was working in a nearby office, saw this morning's helicopter crash.
There was a flash and the helicopter plunged to the ground. It exploded and you can imagine the smoke coming out of it.
It was probably heading from the nearby heliport. It may be that on this misty morning the lights on nearby St George's Tower weren't on and it moved and clipped the edge of the crane and lost control.
