The wreckage from the helicopter crash in the Shetlands is being brought ashore for inspection by a team from the Air Accidents Investigation Branch (AAIB).
Shetland coastguard manager John Webster earlier said:
The heavy-lift ship is out at the moment trying to recover what wreckage it can from the sea. After that the Air Accidents Investigation Branch will decide where to take it.
A lot of our crew are shocked, to say the least. We've dealt with a few air crashes before. Each one is different but each is as sad as the last.
