Exclusive pictures: Second helicopter takes off from north Norfolk crash site

A second military helicopter which landed on Cley marshes after US servicemen saw their colleagues crash has taken off from the site.

The aircraft had been left at the Norfolk Wildlife Trust nature reserve since last week's accident for fear that moving it could disturb evidence.

A Pave Hawk helicopter crashed into the marshes last Tuesday evening, killing all four of its crew.

As the US Air Force continues with its investigation into the cause of the crash, the second helicopter was finally able to leave this afternoon.

Both aircraft and crews were based at RAF Lakenheath in Suffolk.
