Legal action over North Sea helicopter deaths settled

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

The pilots - Paul Burnham, 31, of Methlick, Aberdeenshire, and Richard Menzies, 24, of Worcestershire - and all 14 passengers died in April 2009 when the Super Puma came down.

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.
