The inquests into a Norfolk helicopter crash which killed four men was delayed on Thursday.

Norfolk Coroner's Court postponed the inquest until March next year as they are still waiting for air accident investigators to complete their report.

A final draft report into the crash has been written by the investigators but it will not be published until March as it needs to be reviewed.

Lord Ballyedmond Edward Haughey, 70, Captain Carl Dickerson, 36, Declan Small, 42, and Captain Lee Hoyle, 45, all died in the crash at Gillingham on March 13 this year.
