Glasgow helicopter crash rotor blades 'not spinning'

The rotor blades of a helicopter that crashed into the roof of a Glasgow pub stopped spinning before the point of impact, investigators said.

The Air Accidents Investigation Branch (AAIB) said: "All main rotor blades were attached at the time of impact but neither the main rotor nor the fenestron tail rotor were rotating."

The AAIB said initial investigations showed no evidence of engine or gearbox failure.
