Michael Gavin saw the accident while he was standing at Vauxhall station.
I was facing the building when it happened and I heard a loud bang. The top of the crane was actually obscured by fog so I didn't see the impact.
But I heard a bang and saw the body of the helicopter falling to the ground along with pieces of the crane and then a large plume of smoke afterwards.
