Nature reserve could create memorial to helicopter crash victims

The north Norfolk nature reserve where a military helicopter crashed last week could create a memorial to the four US servicemen who lost their lives.

The four men and one woman - Capt Christopher Stover, Capt Sean Ruane, Tech Sgt Dale Mathews and Staff Sgt Afton Ponce - were based at RAF Lakenheath in Suffolk.

Today, Bernard Bishop, Norfolk Wildlife Trust's warden at Cley Marshes where the crash happened, said he thought it was fitting that a memorial should be created at the nature reserve.

"Families of the lost air personnel will want to come back and see the site," he said.
