Concerns over helicopter deal overshadow meeting

India's Prime Minister took the opportunity of a meeting with David Cameron to raise his concerns about a deal between Anglo-Italian helicopter firm AgustaWestland and the Indian air force.

Authorities in India are concerned that the £480 million contract to supply the air force with military helicopters may have broken corruption and tax fraud laws.

It follows the arrest in Italy of two executives from the firm and its parent company Finmeccanica.
