Shetland rescue workers continue search for final body

Coastguards said they may be close to recovering a fourth body from the wreckage of a helicopter that crashed off Shetland.

The Shetland coastguard manager said:

There is one person still unaccounted for. That search is ongoing and we will hopefully have it resolved in the next few hours.

A lot of our crew are shocked, to say the least. The majority are holding out well but one or two are suffering a wee bit more than others. Our role will end as soon as the final body is recovered.
