Investigations are continuing at the site of a fatal helicopter crash in Gillingham.
Four people died when the AgustaWestland AW139 crashed in a field off the A143 Yarmouth Road, near Beccles, in heavy fog on Thursday evening.
It was taking off from Gillingham Hall, home of Edward Haughey, Lord Ballyedmond, who died in the crash.
The other victims were Declan Small, a site foreman for Lord Ballyedmond’s company, and pilots Carl Dickerson and Lee Hoyle.
Investigators from the Air Accidents Investigation Branch (AAIB) were at the scene of the crash, today.
They could be seen sifting through the wreckage of the aircraft and removing sections from the site.
The AAIB took over as the investigators yesterday.
Detectives with specialist skills from the Norfolk and Suffolk Major Investigation team last night said they were satisfied there were no suspicious circumstances surrounding the incident.
