An offshore helicopter company has resumed Super Puma helicopter flights carrying passengers to oil and gas installations.

Bristow said it resumed operations using the Super Puma AS332 L on Monday after an earlier suspension was lifted.

The aircraft is a different model to the Super Puma that crashed off Shetland last month, leaving four people dead.

Chancellor George Osborne - who later flew offshore in one of the Super Puma AS332 Ls - paid tribute to the "brave" workers who died.

Mr Osborne said he recognised the "vital" role the oil and gas industry plays in the UK economy.
