Teenager's tribute to crash pilot


A teenager from Huddersfield has paid tribute to the pilot who died after the helicopter he was flying crashed into a crane in London on Wednesday.

Callum Parkinson, 17, said he owed his life to Pete Barnes, who flew the Yorkshire Air Ambulance to his rescue in 2009.

Mr Barnes, from Berkshire, flew dozens of rescue missions for the air ambulance and has been described by colleagues as "one of the best".
