MPs call for oil companies to face helicopter safety inquiry
MPs have called for a public inquiry into whether commercial pressure from oil and gas companies affects offshore helicopter safety.
The Transport Select Committee also want a full examination into the role of the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA).
The recommendations are contained in a report which follows the 2013 crash of a Super Puma helicopter near Sumburgh Airport in Shetland.
Four passengers were killed when the helicopter ditched into the North Sea.
Colin Blane reports.
