Leonardo Helicopters unveil new Search and Rescue helicopter

Yeovil's Leonardo Helicopters officially unveil a new Search and Rescue helicopter which will be used in Norway.

The firm, which used to be called Agusta Westland, is to make 16 of them by 2020.

The new AW101 helicopter will be replacing the Westland Sea King which Norwegian rescue teams had been using for the past 40 years.

The contract to build the helicopters was made in 2013 and this is the first time the new model has been seen with the search and rescue livery.
