An MP has again called on a Government minister to visit the Portland search and rescue helicopter base, which is threatened with closure. In a debate in Parliament, Richard Drax accused the government of failing to consult local people about the proposal, which he said would cost lives.
The South Dorset MP called for the discussion after the announcement that the aircraft is due to go when the service is privatised in 2018. The area will then be covered from bases further away. He said officials should see the area for themselves.
