Questions remain over what caused a helicopter to ditch in the North Sea yesterday.

The Bond Operated Super Puma had to make a controlled ditch into the water roughly 25 miles from Aberdeen.

The firm’s grounded all EC225 models for now.

Thanks to the skill of the pilot all 14 people on board were rescued and none have sustained serious injuries.

Ashley Roy is the Director of Commercial Services from the Bond Aviation Group.

Despite this being the 3rd of the company’s aircraft to crash in the past 3 years, he insists they are still putting safety first.
