Four hurt in helicopter crash

Four people have been injured after a police helicopter crashed this morning in the Mourne Mountains.

A police spokeswoman said the four occupants were able to walk away from the wreckage. They are not thought to have been seriously injured but have been taken to hospital for observation.

It is understood the Europcopter Squirrel, which is being leased by the PSNI, turned over shortly after taking off.

This morning's crash happened near the location where an Agusta helicopter came down near Hilltown, Co Down, on Saturday afternoon mid-way between Newry and Newcastle. Three people, including the pilot, died in that crash.

A police spokeswoman said the aircraft was participating in the police clearance of the site where Saturday's crash happened.

An air accident investigation has been launched into how today's crash happened.
