Safety group reviews helicopter suspension after crash

Offshore industry leaders are to reconvene to review the suspension of Super Puma flights after last week's fatal helicopter crash off the coast of Shetland.

A meeting of the industry's Helicopter Safety Steering Group (HSSG) was adjourned yesterday without reaching a decision on when the helicopters can return to the air.
