Helicopter in water The ditching happened in 2012

Ten oil workers who were on board a Super Puma that ditched in the North sea off Aberdeen are taking legal action against the aircraft operator.

All 14 passengers and crew involved in the incident in May 2012, about 30 miles east of Aberdeen, were rescued.

Solicitors Digby Brown said they were representing 10 oil workers in an action against Bond Offshore Helicopters.

It is understood each case involves a six-figure claim.

Bond declined to comment in detail on the ongoing legal proceedings.

However, the company said the professionalism of its crew in setting the helicopter down safely had been praised after the incident.
