Legal action by the partners of two pilots who died in a North Sea helicopter crash has been settled.

Their partners, Joanne McKenzie and Katherine Botham, lodged multi-million pound personal injury claims.
Bond Offshore Helicopters said the claims had been settled.
A hearing had been due at the Court of Session in Edinburgh.
